Hands-on activities for everyone include: theater games inspired by Augusto Boal and led by American Conservatory Theater’s Stage Coach program, an acrobatic dance performance by Body Waves, percussion and beat-based performances by Bay Area teens, and more. Participants can preview the Youth Art Exchange exhibition Our Changing City.

Place/Displaced, presented by SOMArts and Bayview Opera House, invites everyone to the table to explore the role we each play in a changing Bay Area in the present moment, marked by an unprecedented increase in Ellis Act evictions, Black flight and the outmigration caused by an affordability crisis. More than 40 participating artists and groups use their various creative practices to recall and record diasporic histories, reveal complex identities and address issues of cultural preservation. Included artworks and installations envision new possibilities for cities in transition, and the financial and spiritual well-being of their inhabitants.
