Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) supports and presents numerous arts programs in both performing and visual arts, including the Oregon Coast Jazz Party, the Newport Paper and Book Arts Festival, our mobile arts classroom – the Oregon Coast Art Bus, our annual youth summer camps in visual and performing arts, and various arts learning classes for adults and youth alike throughout the year. We also present annually the Metropolitan Opera – Live in HD series, and National Theatre Live.

OCCA also recently launched our Teaching Artist Preparation program (TAP) – providing community artists with tools and paid training to help develop their abilities as instructors.

OCCA seeks to engage our communities (artistic, cultural, and geographic) and provide an environment in which everyone feels welcomewanted, and appreciated, with the support and respect needed to be their full, authentic selves.
