Eyes on Oakland is a community-powered, art-meets-journalism initiative that seeks to inform and engage residents across Oakland about the different types of surveillance technology used by local police. A collaboration between the Mobile Arts Platform and The Center for Investigative Reporting, Eyes on Oakland featured two key venues: a participatory installation in the “Who Is Oakland?” exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California, and pop-up outings around Oakland with the Mobile Arts Platform, a classic Ford Falcon van retrofitted as a roving newsroom. The work was sourced by information from CIR’s reporting, and driven by creative insights gathered from Oakland residents. So far, Eyes on Oakland has directly incorporated attitudes on surveillance from hundreds of residents, and inspired a host of fact-based conversations on the balance between privacy and public safety in communities across the city and at the Oakland Museum.
Hope to see you there!
