the project

MOKA will provide art classes and community cultural events.

Moka’s exhibitions and programming goals are to contribute to the revitalization of the Hill district’s cultural legacy by presenting a diverse range of art exhibitions, education and community programming.

The goal is to serve the community socially, aesthetically and economically by the presentation of stimulating exhibitions and programming.

The founders of MOKA are the artists Errol “Mobutu “ Reynolds and Charlotte Ka. Mobutu and Charlotte longed for the vibrant culture of art, music and community that had been so vital to the Hill's legacy . As witnesses of that history with extensive experience in the arts, they decided to develop a house of kulture for the Hill’s current rebirth of culture.

They selected the name MOKA / Mecca of Kulture and Art / Errol is known as Mobutu / shortened to Mo and Charlotte’s last name is Ka / hence MOKA was named . . ..and the dream of such a space has become a reality.

MOKA is a cultural home to meet,  reflect, learn, create…a place to dream!

Charlotte and Mobutu are raising this $12,000 in community investment to finish the space for its public opening.  Thank-you gifts will be offered to donors.
