The OAEC Barn, A Community Love Story
After The Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s historic barn burned down on April 28th, 2020, a generous community, in these challenging times, and core supporters at the 11th Hour Project offered up the funding to rebuild, so this cherished gathering space can endure well into the future.
Film makers Andrew Hasse and Sashwa Burrows donated their time and talent to create this video story of the beloved barn.
