      The Watershed Project plans to create a community installation to celebrate East Bay environmental justice heroes. Take part by writing anything from a word to a sentence that conveys your dreams for Richmond on an online “Walk of Dreams Board.” The project will transcribe these sentiments onto fabric swatches and add them to the “living sculptures” located along the Richmond Greenway. If you live near or visit the Greenway, you can write your dream on a blank piece of fabric, which will be on the sculptures and available to view starting Jan. 16. Jan. 4-31, available to view in person starting on Jan. 16. Free.
