The Great Wall of Oakland is a non-profit organization and a 100′x100′ projection installation in Oakland’s Uptown District. The Great Wall provides high-quality art production for the general public, along with contributing to the economic and social health of Oakland and supporting artists in developing new work. Our mission is to educate and enliven urban communities, give talented local artists a prominent place to screen their work, and to enrich the lives of the people who live and work in Oakland. As a free outdoors arts venue in the heart of Oakland, the Great Wall serves an extremely diverse population. On average, roughly 25,000 people interact with the Great Wall of Oakland each year. In addition to commissioning new work for the Wall, this year, the Great Wall will inaugurate a resident artist program in local schools, as well as a project that offers local residents the opportunity to get hands-on experience in video creation.
