Profile Information

Bio:
Roots and Branches improve exposure to cultural events in our neighborhoods by bringing art, music and food to street level. People who do not normally experience live art and music, due to either a lack of access or disengagement with commercialized versions of cultural events, find solace in Roots and Branches programming. By activating public space in Oakland, we create a safe platform for dialogue between community members. Accessible art and music provide youth with an opportunity for self-empowerment. Our portable stage hosts performances from local talent and actively engages all in a creative process.

Taking art and music out of the commercial realm ensures that young people are able to be active participants rather than monetary statistics. Giving young Oakland artists a platform to share their creativity boosts self-esteem and cultivates critical thinking. We have a strict code of ethics about what is displayed on our stage. Artists are guided to use clean lyrics and clean content to relay their messages. We operate with an “each one teach one” mentality and create an ephemeral and all-inclusive visual and performing arts space. Participants leave our events feeling proud of their community.
