Community Projects

Oakland is Proud

We are creating and activating 5 cultural plazas on currently blighted properties along a 7-mile stretch of International Blvd to mitigate the possible displacement that will occur when the new Bus Rapid Transit route is constructed.  Each of these plazas will be planned and implemented with a different set of neighborhood partners and each of which will be inaugurated with a unique, artist-led event before ESAA turns over the programming of the plaza fully to the neighborhood partners. The plazas will then be used for ongoing cultural events, marketplaces, video screenings, and other community gatherings.  

Traditions

Every year, EastSide (co) produces our anchoring Traditions events: Dia De Los Muertos, Holiday Art and Book Sale, Black History Month, Lunar New Year, the Malcolm X Jazz Arts Festival and Xicana Moratorium.
