Creative Mornings Oakland is proud to announce our speaker for May’s Freedom themed talk: the sensational Favianna Rodriguez.

It will be held on a Thursday, May 22nd, 8:30a at Impact HUB in downtown Oakland.

Favianna Rodriguez is a transnational interdisciplinary artist and cultural organizer on a mission to create profound and lasting social change in the world. Her art and collaborative projects address migration, global politics, economic injustice, patriarchy, and interdependence. Favianna’s practice is grounded in the desire to humanize and empower communities who are impacted by inequality and racism. She spends time on the front lines with affected communities, researching policies and supporting fellow artists of color and migrants through resources, mentorship, and collaborative opportunities. Born and raised in Oakland, California, Favianna’s earliest mentors were artists and movement leaders in the Chicano and Black Arts Movement. When Favianna is not making art, she is directing CultureStrike, a national arts organization that engages artists, writers and performers in migrant rights.

Freedom she exudes. It should be a great one. Don’t forget to sign up for your free ticket!

About our Speaker: An entrepreneuer of her own brand, Nenna Joiner takes pride in knowing and being a part of Oakland, while doing what she can to turn the sex industry on its head. From setting good examples in small business etiquette to educating the town on their safe sexual exploration, she has made a mark in several creative ventures. She is a two-time Feminist Porn winner, has been appointed by the mayor as commissioner on Measure Y Oversight Committee for Oakland, and has a new book coming out in May, Faith, Flesh & Finance. Catch Nenna making films, curating galleries, or doing her own version of the Vagina Monologues with an Oakland spin. But most importantly hear her speak on the topic of Sex in Creativity at our upcoming CreativeMornings Oakland.
