Oakland’s Public Square Panel Discussion: What Makes A Neighborhood?

California Humanities is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Swan’s Market in conjuction with East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) by hosting a panel discussion.

Swan’s Market has been a place of convergence for local people and businesses-- grocers, butchers, and eateries-- for 100 years and continues to be a place where people gather. Join us in exploring the concept of the public square in relation to Old Oakland.

Local community and civic leaders will discuss the importance of the public square to a thriving civil society—one with an active political discourse and strong community engagement. How do people create a sense of community in a changing neighborhood?

The panel will take place at California Humanities' offices located in Swan's Market, 2nd floor, reachable via elevators and stairwell near Housewive's Market Fish and Seafood and outdoor food court of Swan's Market. The address is 538 9th Street Suite 210, Oakland, CA 94607.

Moderator: Jeremy Liu, Senior Fellow for Arts, Culture and Equitable Development at PolicyLink.
