COMMUNITY ADVOCACY THROUGH ART

 

Community Advocacy Through Art (CATA) is a project of the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation. CATA creates public art events and street art murals as mediums of social advocacy and community-building. With the support of local artists, businesses, and nonprofits, CATA provides art opportunities to community members of all backgrounds and raises awareness of local topics such as homelessness, community gardening, mental health, and affordable housing.

 

To date, CATA has completed four murals and hosted dozens of public art events. For more about each CATA mural, click on the tiles below.
