A grant worth more than $700,000 was awarded to Oakstop and Black Music Entrepreneurship Incubator to buy the building they work out of in West Oakland’s Acorn neighborhood.

Bosko Kante (@boskolive), a musician and Grammy-winning producer who is now on the @blackmusicincubator team, sees his own entrepreneurship as a model he hopes to help others emulate. He recalled the successful career he had carefully built hitting a rough patch during the 2008 financial crisis. “For a while, I didn’t have a recording studio,” he said. “I couldn’t make noise.”

Now that BME Incubator and Oakstop are acquiring the space where Kante built and promoted the @electrospit, they can customize the floor plan for artists’ needs, said Trevor Parham, founder and director of Oakstop.

“When you have creative control, you can start to build in structural changes to the building that will drive the creative agenda. For instance, you can take down a whole wall if you want to build out a bigger studio,” he said. “Most real estate developers or owners are not thinking about artists as the consistent use case; they’re more so looking at office and residential and just trying to keep things as vanilla as possible,” which he called “the antithesis of creativity.”

The Performing Arts Acquisition Fund grants, announced Jan. 3, total $3 million and are going to:

• Black Cultural Zone Community Development Corporation for pre-development expenses toward building a neighborhood arts hub at Liberation Park in East Oakland;

• East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative and House/Full of Blackwomen for the purchase of Esther’s Orbit Room in West Oakland;
Gamelan Sekar Jaya for the purchase of the space it is currently leasing in Berkeley;

• Oakstop LLC and Black Music Entrepreneurship Incubator for the purchase of the former Zoo Labs building in West Oakland;

• Pajaro Valley Arts for the purchase of a planned arts center in Watsonville.

My greatest achievement in life to date has been becoming a yoga teacher. Iv been on the may for over 12 years. My intention when I started was never to become a teacher but to heal my body. 

That's how yoga happens you are drawn to it for a reason but you discover something completely new once you get into it. You discover that you are a person with desires and now has the ability to sense what you need, Identify it and give it to yourself or seek it elsewhere. 

I became a teacher to show ppl what has brought me closer my myself.

Excellent customer service and answers every call and question! Signing up was easy and quick. I was able to speak to with Shane who did an amazing job of explaining my membership, how to access my mail, etc. THIS is how you operate a business. Definitely a great decision.

The space is awesome and very unique. It blends the artist performance space and tech startup culture with Oakland’s edginess and beauty.

You get the professionalism and capacity to get high level work done but without the pretentiousness and sterileness of a traditional tech work setting. Cost was also pretty reasonable and probably much cheaper than comparable spaces.

Got to play cello here during one of their art exhibits. Wonderful space they have and outstanding group of people organizing it! I had a blast playing in their space and meeting and talking with the people there.
