Support Emergent Landscapes 2020 performances!
Emergent Landscapes is a free, public art festival presenting dance, music, and visuals arts performances by local artists of color within Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve in Oakland/Huichin. Artists activate specific sites throughout the park and attendees encounter the performances in forested trails, grassy hills, and rocky valleys. We invite Black and Brown communities to reimagine and self-determine their relationships with natural ecosystems, challenging the way the environment has been racialized through colonization, slavery, and displacement.
In 2019, Emergent Landscapes featured artists Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Jade Ariana Fair, Marcelo Garzo Montalvo, Nkiruka Oparah, randy reyes, and Gabriela Sans.
In 2020, Emergent Landscapes will return to Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve with new featured artists. In 2021 and beyond, we are exploring additional landscapes and possibilities.
This project is initiated by Beatriz Escobar and Anna Xu and in collaboration with local artists of color and East Bay Regional Park District.
We need your help to make it happen!
