This self-guided walking tour, co-hosted by Chapter 510 and the Center for Art + Public Life at CCA, takes you from the Oakland Museum of California to Chapter 510, an Oakland community organization committed to creating a literacy project focused on supporting teachers and developing creative and expository writing skills for students.
You are invited to engage with 4 distinct historic and community sites in Oakland: Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts, Regina’s Door, Betti Ono, Soul Space: Shoe Gallery and Creative Lab. The tour starts at Oakland Museum of California, where you will be met by Chapter 510 high school students as your guides. We will stop briefly at each venue to learn about programming, various mediums through which issues of power are addressed and how these organizations are situated in relation to the dynamics of displacement.
A map will be provided for this self-guided tour. Anticipated length of walking tour is 1 hour 30 minutes one way, 40 minutes return. The walk starts at 2:30 at OMCA, and ends at 4:00 at Chapter 510 for a public conversation, snacks and drinks. If you’d like to walk as a group, we will meet at OMCA at 2:30.
