We’re not going Anywhere”
Public services for the public.
8 Vans parked alongside Lake Merritt, in Oakland with all their wheels removed and resting on cinder-blocks. Each van with its own unique public service experience and an open sliding door letting people in from the sidewalk with an alluring carpet. Each van will be decorated and the services will be things like, “have a delicious meal” “very gentle things” “advice from a local” “teatime” “learn to dj” “miniature-skill sharing” and so on. Each van will have someone inside giving the service and someone outside introducing the experience. The Vans will stay parked for several hours, then the wheels will go back on and they’ll drive away.
