Rhythmix Cultural Works is dedicated to building a strong, healthy community, beginning with our diverse cultural arts and educational programming. Our mission is to bring people of all ages together to experience and explore music, dance, visual art and educational opportunities. The organization seeks to build community by inspiring engagement in the arts as a way to learn about each other and the world. With a strong commitment to provide programming relevant to the local population, Rhythmix strives to promote cultural awareness, encourage participation in the arts, and support artists in the presentation of their work. Rhythmix has served over 150,000 visitors who contribute to the wellbeing of the local economy, raise Alameda's visibility as a prime destination for the arts, and help make the city a place where people can be proud to live, work and play.
As the leading provider of cultural arts performances and educational activities in Alameda, RCW aspires to build an engaging community-based arts organization that features programming relevant to the local population. Rhythmix presents a range of family-friendly events that feature artists representing a mix of contemporary and traditional arts disciplines from around the world. Performances include a range of music genres (jazz, blues, world music, and classical), dance, comedy, family programming, and free community events. The K Gallery at Rhythmix presents six visual art exhibitions annually, along with a weekly Art Jam, where local artists create in a shared studio environment.
Since 2012, the Rhythmix Performance, Art & Learning program has served over 30,000 students throughout Alameda County with FREE arts education assemblies highlighting world music and dance traditions. Rhythmix also serves families and youth through community-based programming including its 'Round the World Festival and biennial Island City Waterways project celebrating Alameda’s past and present cultural history.
