Oregon Coast Council for the Arts

The non-profit Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is based in the thriving central Oregon coast town of Newport. OCCA’s mission is to develop, promote and celebrate community arts – and to promote and provide high-caliber arts experience on the Oregon coast. OCCA also manages the Newport Performing Arts Center and Newport Visual Arts Center, in partnership with the City of Newport. Serving as the hub for all art opportunities, OCCA nurtures the artist in everyone by providing a range of educational opportunities for professional and amateur artists alike – so that they can cultivate their creative spirits.
