Join the Arts Loan Fund as we hear from two commercial developers who have both engaged with the Oakland arts community by hosting large public meetings, encouraged dialogue with artist groups, and have made a commitment to community engagement. 

We will be joined by the Strategic Urban Development Alliance (SUDA) who is a part of a public-private partnership to develop a mixed-used project on the existing West Oakland BART station parking area. We will also hear from Orton Development who is redeveloping the Oakland Civic, which consists of the Kaiser Center and Calvin Simmons Theater.
