CD+A working on the implementation of Paint the Town!

May 12, 2018

CD+A is working with local communities in the City of Oakland to implement their Paint the Town! projects. Paint the Town! is a pilot program launched by the City of Oakland’s Department of Transportation (OakDOT), that lets communities create vibrant street murals at intersections and mid-blocks in their neighborhoods. This programs aims to foster community building and public safety using creativity and the resource of our city streets. Funding for this award comes from private donations to the Oakland Fund for Public Innovation, a nonprofit platform to engage private funders in support of city priorities.

For this project CD+A worked with Earth Team, an environmental non-profit that engages high school students throughout the East Bay in an after school internship program. The students’ projects are aimed at reducing litter in Oakland, and raising awareness about the effects of litter on our Bay through community engagement.

We’re looking forward to the next painting day with ASCEND School on June 2nd!

Special thanks to Walk Oakland Bike Oakland and Earth Team for their work, and the Oakland Fund for Public Innovation for their funding support.
