About Us

Destiny Arts Center inspires and ignites social change through the arts by providing young people with inclusive spaces for self-discovery, expression, and connection. In our North Oakland studios, at school and community partner sites, and on stages throughout the Bay Area, Destiny Arts Center serves over 3,000 students ages 3 to 24 each year. Young people are taught mastery of movement arts, conflict resolution, and how to be advocates for peace with the ultimate goal of becoming confident and honorable citizens and leaders. Our process creates a tightly knit community of peers that cuts across geography, age and socio-economics, eliminating barriers and building bridges towards a beloved community. Rooted in the values of love, respect, care, responsibility, honor and peace since 1988, Destiny moves at the intersection of the arts, civic engagement, and social change.
