In collaboration with the AfroSurreal writers workshop, artist Chris Treggiari, and the Oakland community, Pro Arts will present The Citizens Inauguration: Oakland – an interactive performance/call to action that will bring together artists, cultural workers, activists, and Oakland residents, giving them the opportunity to deliver their own presidential speeches, in which they highlight their own hopes and dreams for the next four years.
The Citizens Inauguration: Oakland will recreate the presidential inauguration stage at Washington D.C, inside of Pro Arts gallery, creating an open platform that will allow participants to stand up and share their voices, in response to the President-elect Trump’s inauguration and his vile policies and ideas.
All performance and speeches will be streamed on Facebook Live, thus giving global access to this Oakland based action, and inviting civil engagement from the online community.Want to hear about more events and updates? Sign up for our newsletter below!
