About ARTogether

ARTogether offers community art programs, supports refugee and immigrant artists, and works to present a more authentic narrative of refugees to the public. Our mission is to provide art programs that foster compassionate communities where refugees and immigrants can flourish.  You can learn more about ARTogether’s programs on our website and on our About ARTogether page.

ARTogether’s programs are designed to support refugees and immigrants in our community. Our programs welcome refugee, immigrant, Black, Indigenous, POC (people of color), LGBTQ+, and ally communities throughout the Bay Area. By principle, the majority of ARTogether’s programs available to all communities in the Bay Area and beyond, and works to build inclusive, dynamic communities without exclusion.

You can find all of our events on ARTogether’s Events Calendar and our Happenings page. You can also find updates about ARTogether’s programs by following us on social  media through ARTogether’s pages on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

During COVID-19 and shelter-in-place ordinances, we are holding the majority of ARTogether’s programs and events online via Zoom and other online platforms. We are, though, holding some events in person at outdoor venues, mostly in Oakland and the East Bay, in settings in which we can follow clear guidelines to ensure the safety of our participants. (These safety standards follow strict CDC guidelines.) To find out more about our events, visit ARTogether’s Events Calendar or follow ARTogether on social media.
