Sensory Rich World Building / Oakland Rent Increase / New Arrivals Collection: Youth
Today, we meet an artist who takes ordinary objects and experiences and reimagines them to find new meaning. We speak with Multi-media artist, Robin David. Then, we talk to Oakland City Councilmember Carroll Fife, who recently led a campaign to cap the annual increase on rents in rent-controlled buildings. And, we listen to three Bay Area authors read from books for and about young people.
