Mills documentary project on the economy seeks Oakland stories
on February 24, 2012
A Mills College documentary project called Economic Edge is focusing on an area that includes the Fruitvale and San Antonio neighborhoods in Oakland. They are asking people how the economic downturn is affecting them, their businesses and their lives. In addition to producing documentary reports, they will also create a portrait of the area using a map and people’s stories. You can find their website here.
What are the stories you want to be told? If you’d like to suggest ideas, or are a resident of those neighborhoods who would like to tell your story, you can contact Holly Kernan at hkernan [at] Mills [dot] edu.
