Shannon Jackson Empowering Artists in Oakland and Saint-Denis, France

Associate Vice Chancellor of Arts + Design and Global Urban Humanities Faculty Shannon Jackson participated in two learning expeditions to amplify the role of the cultural sector in the urban development of Oakland and Saint-Denis, France. Two teams of French and American urbanists, artists, architects, scholars and urban planners exchanged their experiences and ideas on imagining inclusive and creative cities in the wake of gentrification, displacement, housing and sustainability and other civic issues. A short documentary about the Oakland-Saint-Denis project will be released in 2020. More
