The votes are in and we have been nominated for another fantastic award. Attitudinal Healing Connection was voted Best Arts Nonprofit by East Bay Express: Best of the East Bay 2016 – Arts & Culture Writers' Picks.
Voting took place by the people and so this award is especially important to us as our commitment is to the community of Oakland. "It's always humbling and validating for our years of hard efforts to be acknowledged. Thanks so much East Bay Express!!! We are incredibly thankful!" Amana Harris, AHC Executive Director.
But we will not pause to bask in these acknowledgments as there is a lot of work to do. We will continue to work hard to give our community the opportunities they deserve and teach love and peace through art. In fact, we are in the process of working on the 5th Oakland Super Heros Art mural project. The third grade class of Hoover Elementary school worked proudly to create their superheros/sheros which will be the inspiration of Art Director David Burke’s newest mural design. David will present his proposed mural drawing to the entire Hoover Elementary school for their feedback before deciding on the final design. The location of this mural is very special as it will be painted across from the West Street underpass mural that is dedicated to AHC art and friend, Antonio Ramos.
We need your help and there are so many ways to get involved. Join us for our Gala Fundraiser on November 5, 2016, at Scott’s Seafood Restaurant. For more information, go to our Gala Page.
