UPDATES FROM THE PACC

JUNE 2020

We're Re-opening at a Limited Capacity!

With five meeting rooms, outdoor areas, and two banquet rooms with a total combined square footage of over 14,611, the PACC has plenty of space to host county-approved gatherings. For more information, or to find out if your event meets these restrictions, feel free to call/ text us at (805) 385-8147 or email us at info@oxnardperformingarts.com. Please note, our office is also reopening by appointment only.

The PACC is Awarded Another Grant!

The PACC is one of sixteen new public humanities grantees that will receive funding through the latest round of the Humanities for All Project Grant program. The grant is supporting "CLOSE TO HOME: A year-long community conversation spotlighting the people, places and perspectives surrounding homelessness." It seeks to engage the community (residents, students, artists, businesses, nonprofits, government) in exploring this layered topic through an open, thoughtful, and humanistic series of activities and events: presentations and discussions, film screenings, an exhibit of photography and artwork created by homeless people, and storytelling. Through these means, the PACC aims to bring those with and without homes together – under its roof – and find common ground.

COVID Relief at The PACC

On May 20th, members of SEIU Local 2015 set up a pop-up in front of the Oxnard PACC to handout personal protective equipment to home care providers of Ventura County. The items included face masks and gloves.
On May 31st, members of United Farm Workers and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, with the support of organizations such as Clinicas Del Camino Real, ILWU Credit Union, Julio's Auto Insurance, fifty150, L & T Catering, UFW Foundation, Radio Indigena, and Mercy Housing, hosted a second food distribution at our parking lot. 
Vitalant will host a blood drive this Saturday, June 6th between 9:30am - 2 pm in the Ventura Room. To make an appointment, please click here.
