TRANSPORTATION SUGGESTIONS: This session is part of an all-day event called FIGMENT Oakland, happening at the amphitheater inside of Mosswood Park, across the street from Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center. The park is easily accessible by the 51A and 57 buses, and is about half a mile from MacArthur BART station. Street parking will be very difficult, so it's strongly encouraged to take public transportation.
