The City of Oakland released a draft plan this week to address community concerns about displacement of artists and lack of affordable spaces for performances and cultural activities. The cultural plan, called “Belonging in Oakland,” is the first the City has issued in 30 years. We’ll talk to Oakland’s Cultural Affairs Manager about how his office proposes to build cultural unity and strengthen the local arts scene in an increasingly unaffordable city. And we want to hear from you: If you’re an artist living or working in Oakland, how can the city support you?

Roberto Bedoya, cultural affairs manager, City of Oakland
