Neighborhood Planning for a Just Transition: An Interview with Marquita Price+ Add to calendar
Fri, Apr 2 2021, 1PM - 2PM
Part of event series: Creative Citizens Series
Janette Kim, Assistant Professor, Architecture Program
Please join students from CCA’s Architecture Division in conversation with Marquita Price, Director of Urban and Regional Planning at the East Oakland Collective. We will ask Price about her involvement in the East Oakland Neighborhoods Initiative, which organized a neighborhood-driven planning process in Deep East Oakland to build a just transition from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy that is ecologically sustainable, equitable and just for all its members. Students Gaeda Alagha, RJ Hafiz, Nidhi Patel, Lulu Wang, Yihan Wang, and Yuyi Zheng from the Urban Imaginaries seminar, taught by assistant professor Janette Kim, will lead this conversation to gain insight into the mission, strategies and challenges of social justice activism in cities today.
This event is the first in a series of Urban Imaginaries events which will also include an interview with Gregory Jackson of the Sustainable Economies Law Center and a roundtable discussion about a book created by the students, called Designing a Just City, that will serve as a toolkit for linking architectural design techniques to movement-led work.
This event is co-hosted by CCA@CCA, E-School, and Urban Works Agency at California College of the Arts. This event is funded by an endowment gift to support The Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series at CCA, an annual series of public programs focused on creative activism.
Free and open to the public
