Project Description

The mission of LA Commons is to engage communities in artistic and cultural expression that tells their unique stories and serves as a basis for dialogue, interaction and a better understanding of Los Angeles. Our programs are grounded in the philosophy that culture is a valuable community resource, art is a powerful tool for telling stories and creating change, and artists have an important role to play in the community development process. Our core audiences are artists, youth, and community residents of all ages in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Los Angeles.

Through these programs, we seek to educate, empower and enrich neighborhoods, while promoting greater understanding, engagement and connectedness for people in Los Angeles. We are committed to extending our unique end-to-end arts process to other communities, while maintaining a strong, vital, homegrown and authentic connection to the areas we currently serve.
