Project Description

The mission of the Bayview Opera House (BVOH) is to serve as the focal point for art and culture in the Bayview Hunters Point (BVHP) community by providing accessible, diverse, and high-quality arts education, cultural programs, and community events in a safe environment.

BVOH highlights the rich cultural heritage of the long-time, deeply rooted African American community, as well as the growing segments of new local residents: Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern and other communities. These arts-based events build social cohesion across multiple generations, and provide safe opportunities for exposure to new cross-cultural experiences.

GOALS:
• Nurture, educate and inspire the next generation of artists of color.
• Offer Opportunities to artists of color to produce and exhibit work in Bayview.
• Grow new informed audiences from the community and the greater Bay Area.
• Create spaces for artists to experiment, collaborate and learn from one another.
