100 Families Oakland: Art & Social Change book

by Dr. Sonia BasSheva Mañjon

Available on Amazon

This beautiful color book documents highlights of the 100 Families community arts project of The Center for Art and Public Life, affilliated with California College of Art (CCA). This Oakland project served residents of the Chinatown, Fruitvale, East Oakland and West Oakland neighborhoods and culminated in an exhibit at the Oakland Museum of Art. The 100 Families project was conceived to enliven the creative spirit and celebrate the power of families and neighborhoods in Oakland through the transformative process of creating art that promotes hope, action, and beauty. For repeating cycles of ten consecutive weeks, families came together to learn about and create art. The project opened up communications between parents and children, children and their peers, and among all with their local community. 100 Families: Art and Social Change features color photos by TaSin Sabir, a graduate of CCA, who has captured families working together and their art. The publication also describes the program model, including background, planning and implementation, evaluation survey graphs and summary information on the program's impact.
