Mission Creek Oakland began three years ago as an extension
of the legendary Mission Creek Festival in San Francisco (now in it's 15th
year!). Both MCO and MCSF are partnered with the Intersection for the Arts -
the Bay Area's oldest arts organization.
Our vision is to bring the spirit
of Mission Creek -- nurturing local art and emerging artists and fostering
community -- to the sunnier side of the Bay. We strive to represent the diversity
of Oakland through as many art forms and musical genres as possible!
MCO is the product of volunteer
labor: musicians, artists, producers and promoters whose reward is people
coming together to witness awesome art and music, and having a good time. This
year, Mission Creek Oakland will grow from one week to spanning the entire
month of September, and that is one of the reasons we are asking for YOUR help.
Please help us provide a month of
creativity and fun in Oakland, by donating to cover its costs: printing
programs, renting equipment, documenting shows, and providing guarantees to
Remember - supporting MCO is also
directly supporting your local arts community! We're all in this together and
we are going to make this AWESOME!!!! See you at the fest in September!
Mission Creek Crew!
