“Oakland Belonging: A Youth-Led Oral History of Swan’s Market”

This two-year oral history and performance project will center Oakland’s Swan’s Market, a culturally vibrant and historic venue at the intersection of four diverse Oakland neighborhoods. The project’s first phase will begin with a nine-month workshop with Oakland high school students to build skills and develop performances. That will be followed by live and self-paced performances and exhibits that engage themes of the importance of identity and place in creating a sense of belonging, and the multiple roles youth can play in designing urban landscapes.
