Keith "K-Dub" Williams, one of the 2009 Oakland Innovators award winners and founder of Town Park, used the grant money given to him by Oaklandish for the "Cabeza Project." He commissioned local Bay Area artist s to decorate several helmets to be worn by the youth who skate at Town Park. The crew at Oaklandish, among many others, checked out this exhibit at the Raw Gallery at the Oakland Art Murmur.
Oaklandish and Hood Games collaborated on the Town Park project. For more Hood Games events, check out The Uptown Throwdown skateboard contest at 18th and Telegraph at the Uptown Unveiled event on 6/18/09 (5:00 - 10:00pm.)
