City/Cité: Translating Cities and Cultures

In the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the Black Lives Matter Movement, social issues are exacerbated. Already engaged in the transformation of their cities, a group of artists, urban planners, entrepreneurs, elected officials and researchers embarked on a journey to examine the process of city-making in France and California. The Oakland/Saint-Denis project was born under a common conviction : our cities must be built collectively and with the arts and humanities at the center.

To enlarge the conversation and celebrate the release of the Oakland/Saint-Denis Cooperation Project publication, California Humanities and Villa San Francisco are launching City/Cité : Translating Cities and Cultures, a series of community conversations.
