HEALING JUSTICE: Exploring Public Art Practices Symposium for Artists

Join us for a day of performances, presentations, and conversations that will explore public art practices that are pushing the boundaries of what it means to heal in the midst of challenging times.

Hosted at the Oakland Museum of California, the Kenneth Rainin Foundation's Exploring Public Art Practices Symposium is a biennial, one-day conference that brings together California artists from a range of practices to investigate the power of art in the public realm.

This year's theme, HEALING JUSTICE, offers a poignant and timely topic to the Symposium. After three years of a global pandemic, ongoing racial unrest, climate disasters, and a divisive political landscape, these public artists are turning to practices that offer us opportunities to engage in communal healing.

Featured presenters include Dohee Lee, Keisha Turner of Deep Waters Dance, Alex Bledsoe, The Oakland Lowdown, Angela Hennessy, Cara Levine, Hector Dionicio Mendoza, Damien McDuffie, Andreina Maldonado, The Future IDs Project, and a curated community building food experience hosted by La Cocina and Wahpepah's Kitchen.

This program is curated and produced by the Learning, Experience, and Programming Team at OMCA.
Launched in 2016, the Exploring Public Art Practices Symposium is supported by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation and is part of its Open Spaces Program. This grantmaking program has awarded over $2.8 million to enable artists to create temporary, place-based public art projects that are responsive to issues relevant to communities in San Francisco and Oakland.

Kenneth Rainin Foundation is dedicated to enhancing quality of life by championing and sustaining the arts, promoting early childhood literacy and supporting research to cure chronic disease.
