Life is Living is an eco-equity, interdisciplinary festival that centers historically underserved neighborhoods and communities with programming in public spaces that have been otherwise neglected. For the last 13 years, the Life is Living Festival has taken place at Little Bobby Hutton Park in West Oakland but due to the impacts of COVID and wildfires, we must host the festival virtually this year.

Our cohort consists of 100+ artists and organizations that power the festival as an intergenerational kaleidoscope of Oakland life. We’ve been Keeping Oakland, Oakland Since 08, holding sacred space in the vein of resistance, art, love, honoring Black and Brown Lives, and being a catalyst for larger discussions around environmental racism, social ecology, and social responsibility.
