We want to acknowledge that our performance space at the Berkeley City Club is located in Huchiun, on unceded Lisjan territory that was stolen from the Ohlone people.  We are grateful for the opportunity to share this land, and as a form of reparations, Central Works contributes annually to the Shuumi land tax which supports the work of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust.

Please help us pay our artists and our bills as we continue to navigate our way through this challenging time.
