Oakland’s Liberation Treasure Hunt (Date: TBA)
Oakland’s Liberation Treasure Hunt (OLTH) is a pilot design project to be co-created by Oakland youth in partnership with the Creative Liberation Network (CLN), a collaboration of Amani Will, Amutabi Haines, Seneca Miller, and Lucy O’Leary. Using permaculture principles, systems analysis, mindfulness practices, and the magic of the CLN Tarot as guides; Oakland’s Liberation Treasure Hunt – will encourage participants to delve into and connect themes of eco-social justice, spirituality, and play in an adventure through and in creation of local landmarks, green/open spaces, and the history of Oakland. The Hunt invites dialogue and action around several questions: How are Oakland communities generating resilience and resource in both their internal and external landscapes? How are Oakland youth generating new energy, perspectives, and opportunities for creative resistance grounded in community innovation and Earth stewardship? How can our resistance to rampant systems of oppression and our innate cultures of resilience be bridges to the new flux of resource in the Bay Area and the needs and desires of long time local communities? CLN invites Oakland’s youth to delve into their creative capacity, connect to their innate dignity, and create the Oakland they desire.
Your daily dose from the Black universe.
In response to current systems and legacies of oppression, and the dangerous and imposed narratives in our mainstream culture, people of the African diaspora are leveraging technology to inspire, create resistance, economic development and over all global empowerment.
We curate a unique framework that combines, and leverages current events, art, culture, tech, politics and more through a network of relevant websites, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, videos and podcasts (all in one place). We are uncovering, amplifying, and unifying the bright Black future we’re designing now.
