FOUND L.A: A FESTIVAL TO CELEBRATE CREATIVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CITY’S UNDISCOVERED NEIGHBORHOODS
Los Angeles is a city of neighborhoods, each with its own identity, each with its own story. Central to the mission of LA Commons is connecting people to the many neighborhoods across our far flung metropolis. Found L.A., a free, citywide event, will showcase these places. Local residents will lead tours alongside celebrities and renowned artists, through culturally dynamic neighborhoods.
