people-centric vibrancy and fierce pride
Oakland has spirit. You don't have to go far to feel the energy of this authentically vibrant community. Thanks to the infectious spirit, we danced on the streets during Oakland's Art + Soul Festival, listened in awe during Oakland's first TEDxOakland, and meandered through galleries on First Fridays. At Oakland's heart is a self-organizing, proud, and loyal creative community.
