Photos from LIFE is LIVING fest-West Oakland

The Life Is Living Fest happened about two weeks ago and I’m just starting to get all the photos together, but here are a few of me and the homies (Yoshi, Bounce, Shaun Burner, Jesse Hernandez, Nancy Hernandez, Keena Romano, Franklin Cartagena, Brian Augsburger, Pierre Knox, and Eli Fantuzzi). This event was a collaborative effort between many artists, activists, and organizations with the goal of seeing activism, poverty, or health as “connected” things.And if you are in Chicago, Houston, NYC, or the Bay Area I urge you to go check it out. There was a Graffiti Battle, Hella Bicycles, Dance performances, spoken word, huge open space and a park for the babies, a skate board competition, live music, vendors, and tons of positive messages for the “hood” such as the one you see me holding in the photo.
