Event Details

The Los Angeles Poverty Department is producing the 2nd annual Festival for All Skid Row Artists on Friday and Saturday January 27 ann 28, 2012 from 12 till 4 PM in Gladys Park, at the corner of 6th and Gladys Street in Skid Row.

Two afternoons of performances and visual arts activities by artists who live and work on Skid Row. We are also inviting a few artists from outside Skid Row to create artistic exchange. Neighborhood artists will perform and Los Angeles Poverty Department will collect digital data to create an artists registry and an archive of the artists work.

In 2009, the Animating Democracy Initiative of Americans for the Arts, released Making a Case for Skid Row Culture: findings from Collaborative Inquiry by the Los Angeles Poverty Department and the Urban Institute. This study found that culture comes from the ground up in Skid Row and is often initiated by residents and resident driven initiatives. This festival is undertaken to recognize these people and initiatives and to stimulate a new way of envisioning and talking about this neighborhood. This project will encourage known neighborhood artists and identify and bring together arts makers who are unknown, even in their own Skid Row neighborhood.

The Skid Row Arts Fest is produced by LA Poverty Department with the support from the California Arts Councils Creating Public Value program and The James Irvine Foundation. CACs CPV program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
