The opening reception for Place/Displaced, presented by SOMArts and Bayview Opera House, features a drum circle led by Kulture Freedom that anyone can join, live performances hosted by American Conservatory Theater’s Stage Coach program, live painting, brief artist talks and interactive installations facilitated by more than 13 participating artists and groups. More information to come!

Place/Displaced 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.
