Join us for the opening of the ARTogether Center in Downtown Oakland.

Join us for a storytelling and art workshop with Badri Valian as part of her Pink Window project. The “Pink Window” project, started in 2019, is an ongoing interactive art project about childhood stories, in which participants join Badri in the reflection and sharing of their own childhood memories while painting pink windows–a symbol and image from Badri’s personal history. “Pink Window” aims to be a communal and creative space that encourages self-reflection, connection, and bridging across experiences.
