Dream Farm Commons is a small, artist run exhibition and project space in Downtown Oakland. It s is a site where radical imagination, visual works, and social practice are happening. We are committed to creative production interchanging across platforms and to new social production. Located in a store front exhibition and project space at 15th and Webster in Downtown Oakland,  we make monthly to bi-monthly exhibitions, along with crazy pop ups, dinners, workshops, performances, social practice projects, and mini residencies;  additionally, we have a productive co-working loft in our upstairs.  The space was founded by three visual artists in May 2018, and is now sustained by a trio of artist/ thinkers.

To us, a commons is a set of shared resources that people can access for various forms of production,  within a shared vision. In our case, our shared terrain is radical imagination, art-making, social change and creative production. We generally operate with horizontal conversation and consensus. We  have also recently embarked on a larger creative commons with our up the street partner ProArts, sharing resources and hatching bigger connections.

We are currently looking for 2-3 artists / curators / writers / activists / thinkers who have a particular focus and a desire to help build and sustain a fruitful commons

 ... curating or producing exhibitions, social practice projects, film series production, poetry/literary publication, zine-making, sound production, photography, design, grounded activism projects and movement-building or that what we have not yet thought of...
