Our Creating Commons Festival this year is part of the East Bay ShareFEST, 2014 Community Resilience Challenge and Golden Gate Second Saturdays
PLACE for Sustainable Living is organizing the Creating Commons Festival for our 3rd year anniversary. This street festival features educational skillshares, clothing swaps, crop swaps, garden installations, public art, local art, music, and placemaking projects that reimagine and re-energize the creation of the public commons throughout our neighborhood. It will occur on three closed streets as well as our sustainability center at the confluence of Northwest Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville, in our neighborhood village of “OakLeyVille”. Creating Commons is inspired by City Repair’s Village Building Convergence, Sunday Streets, Oakland’s Art Murmur and the mini-Maker Faires.
Our event will be listed with and draw on other collaborators participating in the East Bay ShareFest- a regional month long festival of sharing with a consolidated marketing engine, map and calendar of events. Additionally we will be collaborating with the the Community Resilience Challenge organized during the month of May 2014 by the Northern California Resilient Communities Network which encourages local communities to activate projects showcasing solutions through permaculture, transition town, homesteading, and resiliency projects.
