LA Commons, a project of Community Partners, works in neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles,
facilitating artistic processes, open to all, that result in highly visible public art projects that tell dynamic
neighborhood stories. L.A. Commons builds community by validating the importance of local narratives,
enhancing the sense of belonging felt by a broad range of stakeholders and encouraging stronger ties
between the people and places of Los Angeles.
LA Commons helps Los Angeles’s diverse neighborhoods give voice to their unique stories through
community-based arts programs that express the cultural and historical essence of the communities.
With its Trekking LA program, LA Commons introduces tourists to these arts projects, and to the
authentic food, music and culture of the communities. Through these inter-connected programs, LA
Commons educates, empowers and enriches neighborhoods, while promoting greater understanding,
engagement and connectedness for residents and visitors to Los Angeles. Established in 2003, LA
Commons is a 501(c)(3) organization, and is a project of the non-profit incubator, Community Partners.
