4 – 5 pm Community Conversation
A blend of discussion, information dissemination, and networking.
*Looking at the impacts taking place lately regarding the arts: especially funding/available & affordable performance spaces and how the venues are being managed. What are the ways we can begin to have a voice in the use of these spaces, as well as how funding is allocated to support presenting our art/artists? What are the ways African-American artists/presenters can continue to take a more active role in the art and culture in Oakland and SF?
