The East Bay area, a region comprised of Contra Costa and Alameda counties, is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse areas in the country. So it should be fun to watch teens from all pockets of these counties come together tomorrow at the Jack London Square Farmer's Market in Oakland from 10:00AM - 3:00PM. Why are they there? To kick off their teen-created Ecological art, photography and poetry contest Visuals and Voices!
- What??: Visuals and Voices! A teen-created Ecological art contest, performance and concert.
- Why is this special?: Oh come on, you really have to ask??
- It's proof that statements like "The Environmental Movement is Dead." is pure poppycock!
- These voters of tomorrow from conservative suburbs and inner city schools alike, met through the Earth Team coalition and created this contest themselves!
- Their Sunday presentation is officially recognized as part of the kickoff to the UN World Environment Day 2005, which happens next week in San Francisco!!.
- Date: Sunday, May 29th
- Location: Jack London Square, Oakland Farmer's Market
- Time: 10:00AM - 3:00PM (prizes awarded at 1:30)
The ultra-SUBurban kids from Moraga's Campolindo High School will preview their environmental music video, soon to be seen on public television. The Night Train Blues band, whose members attend College Park High in Pleasant Hill, will provide some improvisational riffs. And kids from all over the East Bay and San Francisco will perform spoken word poetry and break dance for our entertainment. If it's anything like last year, it promises edgy, arty, angry and inspiring teen performance.
