Nothing says #MondayMotivation like arts organizations banding together to create positive change in this world! We are so excited to announce our partnership with Artists United. You inspire us!
Artists United aims to democratize the process of creating art through collective action as we empower individual artists. The mission of Artists United is to empower individual artists to create excellent art and to unite all artists to create social change. To make our dream reality, we bring artists together by field and across disciplines. We are launching an army of artists into action to help solve some of the biggest and most pressing problems facing humankind. By launching this organization, we set a movement in motion.
We are excited to partner with an Oakland Institution intent on reinventing itself. Junior Center of Art and Science has a wonderful location on Lake Merritt, we hope to partner with them on programming and are pleased to help them announce the following:

These are strange times, and important times to support each other, build community and strengthen our neighborhood resources. Connect with us, as we connect with the Junior Center of Art and Science as a community partner, and collectively build an even more creative and connected civic society here in the East Bay.
On April 7-8, we will be supporting ZERO1 and the SJSU Paseo Prototyping Festival, so if you live in the Bay Area, come out and join us! Click on the link or see below for the event description.
ZERO1 is partnering with the Paseo Prototyping Festival to produce a series of creative interventions during the festival that explore civic innovation using the combined disciplines of art, science, and technology. As varied in format as they are in content, the interventions include: a public sculpture that serves as an augmented reality portal into the Bay Area housing crisis; a panel discussion on international community projects that apply art, science, and technology to civic challenges; DIY holograms that increase LGBTQ visibility and further equality; an arts incubator workshop on cross-sector collaboration for social impact; and site-specific projection mapping at the festival that addresses the topic of social inclusion.
