Life is Living Festival 

When: Sat., Oct. 12, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2013
Spoken-word nonprofit Youth Speaks will bring the party to West Oakland’s DeFremery Park (1651 Adeline St.) during the sixth annual Life Is Living Festival. Drawing a crowd of more than 6,000 people each year, the festival aims to promote social change through hip-hop and urban arts in an often-neglected part of the city. Activities will include a youth mural competition, stencil and ’zine workshops, and Estria Foundation’s graffiti battle, in which sixteen artists from across the country will compete to see who can best use the form as a way to empower communities. If the visual arts aren’t your scene, the festival will also feature skateboarding demonstrations, a dance stage, and performances by Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Obasi Davis, Grammy nominee John Santos, classical hip-hop outfit Ensemble Mik Nawooj, and singer Kimiko Joy.
