ONLINE EVENT—City/Cité: Translating Cities and Cultures

October 13, 2020 @ 10:00 am11:00 am


In the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the Black Lives Matter Movement, social issues are exacerbated. Already engaged in the transformation of their cities, a group of artists, urban planners, entrepreneurs, elected officials and researchers embarked on a journey to examine the process of city-making in France and California. The Oakland/Saint-Denis project was born under a common conviction : our cities must be built collectively and with the arts and humanities at the center.

To enlarge the conversation and celebrate the release of the Oakland/Saint-Denis Cooperation Project publication, California Humanities and Villa San Francisco are launching City/Cité: Translating Cities and Cultures, a series of community conversations.

Date: Tuesday, October 13 2020
Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m.
