About CATA:

Community Advocacy Through Art, or CATA, is a new project of the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation. CATA uses street art murals to create awareness of the challenges facing our community. With the support of local artists, businesses, and nonprofits, CATA will address issues such as homelessness, affordable housing and human trafficking. We’re starting CATA with a focus on Redwood City and the mid-peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our Process:

  1. Research – Understand the salient local issues and which organizations are working for their resolution.
  2. Collaborate – Work with business owners, artists and city staff to determine mural design and financial sponsorship.
  3. Paint & Publicize – Paint the mural and share it with our community.
