Support our Spring Annual Campaign!

Update Thursday 6/30: Goal met! We have successfully raised $35,000! Thanks to all of our friends and supporters!

After two years of creating an artistic home together, the Resident Companies of The Flight Deck are collaborating on Overnight, a collection of short plays about rapid economic change in Oakland. We’re raising funds for this production and for operating expenses for RWE & The Flight Deck, for a total campaign goal of $35,000 by June 30. Help us maintain a place where diverse, local voices can be heard and keep the arts at the forefront of Oakland’s Downtown revival.
