Mon. Jan 22 Community Meeting: Henry Kaiser Auditorium / Calvin Simmons Theater

Please help spread the word.  
Your voice is needed this Monday, January 22 at a community meeting regarding the future of the Henry Kaiser Auditorium and Calvin Simmons Theatre.  Come learn about the status of this project and why its relevant to Oakland’s Arts and Culture sector.

In September, Oaklandside published an article about the shifting plans for the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center and the Calvin Simmons Theatre. (“Developer scraps plan to use Kaiser Convention Center arena as office space” The project was envisioned and has the potential to be an accessible, community-centric arts and cultural hub for emerging and established organizations and artists. Unfortunately, due to the change in the commitment and direction of the developer as outlined in the Community Benefits Agreement,  the viability of Oakland’s “much-needed mid-sized and affordable home for local and touring arts organizations” is very uncertain.  As a citizen of Oakland and a member of the arts and culture community, your voice is needed in the future of this project.Please join us for an upcoming Community Meetings to learn more and to get involved. Your attendance at both meetings will help move this work forward.
