Hub Oakland Honors MLK Thru Food, Art & Tech at “Grits & Greens” Vol. 2 ~ Jan 16th
“Grits & Greens” Series Serves Up A Full Plate of Food, Art & Tech!
Join Omi Arts* @Hub Oakland and curator/producer Ashara Ekundayo for the 2nd edition of our a delicious breakfast series, “Grits & Greens,” exploring the intersection of food, art, and technology by featuring innovators, educators, artists, makers, hackers, and entrepreneurs living and working in the cross sections of these fields. “Grits & Greens” highlights individuals, companies and organizations committed to sustainable living, creative excellence, social justice, and locally grown solutions. In January we will also highlight creative placemaking strategies inspired by the cosmology of Dr. Martin Luther King.
“Grits & Greens” participants will also get a sneak peak at the latest offerings from the Hub Oakland team, including 1st dibs at Members-Only perks, and have an opportunity to become investors in our economic movement-building model!
