The Trappist was established in 2007. We wanted to create a place that offered all the things we loved about our beer adventures in Belgium. We aim to honor the brewing monks, the pouring rituals, the age-old traditions and, of course, the beer. We aim to provide knowledgeable and friendly service, delicious bar food and the absolute best beer selection. Our bar is housed in an 1870's Victorian and the interior is modeled after our favorite cozy pubs in Belgium and the Netherlands. Our space is comprised of both front bar and back bar rooms, we also have a lovely outdoor patio area with views of turn of the century buildings.
Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) is the only pan-Asian arts and cultural center in the East Bay, welcoming over 25,000 guests each year. We aim to build a stronger, more vibrant community through robust arts, cultural, and social justice programming to connect different generations, cultures, and identities.
WHY WE ARE FUNDRAISING:
The Trappist is proud to partner with the OACC to support Oakland's vibrant arts and culture scene - a major factor in why the Town is so exceptional. Located in the heart of Oakland's downtown, and just 4 blocks away from the OACC, the Trappist has seen and felt COVID-19's negative impacts on institutions in the area. Through this fundraiser, the staff at the Trappist are thrilled to share their time and expertise to benefit a neighboring Chinatown institution and strengthen the arts and cultural scene in Oakland.
Like the OACC, the Trappist has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 closures. Proceeds from this event will also support the bar in maintaining its long-time role as a friendly gathering place for all Oaklanders and beer aficionados.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been a noted rise in reports of racism, violence, and discrimination against APIA communities throughout the country. Now more than ever, OACC's mission, commitment, and dedication towards the APIA community of artists, culture, and social justice is most important and critical to advance diversity and equality. As a place-based organization that provides a wide array of culturally relevant and responsive services to our communities at our Center, OACC has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. We temporarily closed our doors due to the necessary shelter-in-place mandate, which has profoundly changed the programming schedule. As a result, the APIA artists and community partners we work with to provide quality programming have lost a platform to share valuable educational and creative content. The closing of space has placed a significant strain on our resources, including the rental programs at our center, which makes up 42% of our revenue that supports operations and programs as matching funds to grant awards. Despite the setbacks, OACC’s team has nimbly adjusted to develop community-spirited virtual content in light of COVID-19. This includes weekly Virtual Taichi Sessions and transitioning to hosting online events, such as “Our Communities, Climate Change, and COVID-19,” a panel discussion held in partnership with Eastwind Books of Berkeley. The shift to online programs allows us to serve our audience and stay engaged with artists and community voices even during these uncertain times. Proceeds from this event will support our continued programming efforts including, the newly initiated "Open E.A.R.S. for Change" Anti-Racism series.
