Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Rock Paper Scissors Collective (RPSC), and any donation will help make an impact.
After a couple years of searching we’ve found a new space that will include retail, gallery, workshop and event space all in one location. We need support from our community to make our new home a reality. The date for the start of our build out is September 2019 with a move-in date of January 2020. Please donate (below) to allow us to continue making the arts accessible to all.
What makes RPSC special?
- 80% of our community (ranging from youth to seniors) is low-income. Our free, low-cost, and sliding-scale art classes allow people to access new modes of self expression, meet people, and build creative networks.
- The gallery and store are welcoming spaces for amateur and emerging artists from under-represented communities, prioritizing Oakland-based creators.
- We work with underserved through Oakland Public Library and OUSD, and our youth intern program teaches organizational, curatorial, and entrepreneurial skills. Multiple RPSC interns have gone on to graduate from prestigious local art schools, such as the California College of the Arts.
- There are opportunities for youth and adults of all ages to get involved through volunteering, teaching, and/or exhibiting artwork
Through community collaboration programs, we work with local businesses, organizations, and institutions to create unique offerings for diverse audiences.
Rock Paper Scissors Collective is an Oakland-based, all volunteer-run organization that fosters creativity and collaboration to strengthen local communities and encourage sustainable practices and alternative models. We promote the sharing of ideas, skills, and resources through the celebration of art, craft, education, and performance.
