A conversation with Mayor Libby Schaaf of Oakland, California and Mayor Mathieu Hanotin from Saint-Denis, France.

In the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the Black Lives Matter Movement, social issues are exacerbated. Already engaged in the transformation of their cities, a group of artists, urban planners, entrepreneurs, elected officials and researchers embarked on a journey to examine the process of city-making in France and California. The Oakland/Saint-Denis project was born under a common conviction : our cities must be built collectively and with the arts and humanities at the center.

To enlarge the conversation California Humanities and Villa San Francisco invite you to City/Cité : Two Cities, Two Mayors, One Goal on January 14th, 2021

Join Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf and Mayor Mathieu Hanotin from Saint-Denis, France as they discuss what makes their cities special and their shared goal of engaging artists and communities to build creative and inclusive cities.
