Friends of Studio One


Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of Studio One, a community-based organization, is to:

  • Keep Studio One at its current site on 45th Street.
  • Support the City of Oakland's effort to bring the Studio One facility into compliance with all earthquake safety, ADA, and other code requirements.
  • Ensure that the Studio One building is redesigned in a way that creates a fully functional, state-of-the-art cultural arts facility, while preserving the building's historic character, including its façade, landscaping, and key elements identified within the structure.
  • Help maintain and promote Studio One's programs for the use of all Oakland residents.
  • Ensure that Studio One's programs remain vital, accessible, and affordable, including during any temporary building redesign phase.

To these ends the Friends of Studio One are committed to working cooperatively and creatively with the community, City of Oakland staff, the Oakland Studio Arts Association, and elected government representatives.
