CAST Event

Oakland Listening Sessions with CAST | June 12

Date: Monday, June 12, 2023

Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Location: Gaines Gallery, Oakstop - 1740 Telegraph Avenue, 3rd Floor, Oakland


Calling all Oakland artists, cultural workers, and arts organizations! Come engage in a dialogue and share your love for Oakland!

What does keeping creative space mean to you?

What do you need to create your work and live fully in Oakland?

For many of us, the pandemic has shifted the way we show up and navigate within our communities, organizations, neighborhoods, and cities…heck! The World!

CAST is in the process of reevaluating how we engage with the Oakland community and we want to hear from you––Oakland artists, cultural workers, and arts organizations––your projects, priorities, concerns, and dreams. Let’s build upon our work together over the past five years and co-create what comes next.

For those new to CAST, we are a community-centered real estate organization committed to ensuring artists and cultural workers stay anchored where they create. We work in deep partnership with communities across the San Francisco Bay Area, particularly communities of color that have endured systemic oppression and historical underinvestment.

Listening Session #1: Monday, June 12

Listening Session: 5-7pm
