Oakland is Home

In the spring of 2019, 10th graders worked with Civic Design Studio and Akonadi Foundation to create a poster campaign to showcase the student experience of Oakland, titled Oakland is Home. Posters were hung on 9th and Broadway for four months.

MidPen, an affordable housing non-profit firm, took notice and purchased the artwork of 11th graders Sascha R., Havana R. and Kaia M.R. We’re so proud of these students for their work and their community engagement.

Students in the VPA are encouraged to take active roles in the community through their Integrated Projects and Graduate Capstone Projects. Keep posted for updates about these projects this year!
