We're Hiring!

The People’s Conservatory is currently accepting applications for part-time, Teaching Artists for the 2023 - 2024 school year. We are looking for passionate, experienced Music and Movement Teaching Artists with a strong interest in social justice and racial equity art education for in-school and after-school residency opportunities at our Bay Area partner schools. Teaching Artists must have demonstrated previous experience teaching visual arts, music and/ or movement arts ideally in public school settings.

Our Mission & Vision

The People’s Conservatory fosters high level arts creation, study and performance in an effort to promote cultural awareness and positive social change. As artist educators we help young artists reveal themselves by facilitating experiences that help focus on growth and expansion. TPC’s curriculum incorporates a wide range of teachings rooted in ethnic and cultural studies, using our students’ inherent artistic voices to make them the next generation of culture keepers.


TPC trains young artist explorers, with a dedicated focus on brown and black youth from marginalized and economically blighted communities, to envision and create a humane and just world through their art. Our faculty of working artistic professionals helps young people find their creative voices, re-imagine their communities’ most pressing social problems, and transform from cultural consumers to cultural producers. TPC will establish a central hub to house its artists and programming as well as provide a base for arts and culture to be supported and to thrive in Oakland. Students in our conservatory develop a lifelong commitment to learning as they are given the voice and agency to become the new leaders of tomorrow.
