Akonadi Foundation is committed to supporting arts and culture through the #BelovedCommunity Fund as a strategy to advance racial justice. We award grants to support free public arts and cultural events, like Free Me Fast, that celebrate, and are rooted in, communities of color in #Oakland.
Free Me Fast/Liberame is a project with the goal of strengthening Oakland’s youth of colors’ artistic capacities through poetry workshops with the culminating event held at Eastside Arts Alliance on July 21st. // FREE ME FAST is an ALL AGES event that seeks to redirect our minds and hearts towards more impactful responses to the challenges Oakland youth face. //
