About the Artists' Theater Workshop:
Artists' Theater Workshop is a film, video, and performance art venue
dedicated to previewing and promoting the work of Oakland artists, and
to the edification of existing and future film-buffs. Located in the 
Floral Depot at 19th and Telegraph in downtown Oakland, the intimate
screening room provides a vibrant social environment that encourages
meaningful discourse and community involvement. This resourceful new venue
will testify to both the great diversity of creative expression within the
realm of experimental and independent film, video, and performance art and 
the exhilarating cultural mix that makes life in Oakland unique.  ATW's
cutting edge presentations combine the experimental and the familiar, the
global and the local, to create an alternative to the ever encroaching
cineplexes and the pretensions of corporate galleries.  Contact: Erika or
