B4BEL4B Takeover + Fundraiser
Starline Social Club
2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way, Oakland, CA
April 22nd, 7pm - 2am
B4BEL4B is taking over 2 levesl of the Starline Social Club for a Fundraiser featuring an exciting multidisciplinary showcase of local performance artists, music, dancers, fashion, avant drag, and video installations! This night represents B4BEL4B’s unique curation and the diverse and vibrant Oakland artist community they foster. This fundraiser is to help keep B4BEL4B Gallery alive as a vital arts venue during the rapidly changing climate in Oakland — as they meet with new challenges, and as artist-run spaces become endangered.
By contributing to this fundraiser, you can help ensure that this unique and dynamic artist space and community has the needed resources to continue to provide an inclusive and radical platform to create and present work for years to come!
