4th Annual Found L.A.: FREE Festival of Neighborhoods on Sun., Oct. 19th Celebrates L.A.’s GREAT STREETS in Honor of Mayor Garcetti’s Program

Los Angeles, CA (September 12, 2014) On Sunday, October 19, 2014, the non-profit L.A. Commons (www.lacommons.org) will host its 4th annual Found L.A: Festival of Neighborhoods, and its first based on a mayoral theme, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Great Streets Program. Angelenos will explore the main arteries of neighborhoods around the city, developed and not so, and meet the people in the center of activity there.

“Los Angeles is a city filled with neighborhoods built around Great Streets that have vibrant activity and identity,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “I invite you to join LA Commons for this year’s series of tours that focus on the cultural assets in our communities.”

2013’s visit to Compton Creek led to meeting with Mayor Aja Brown at Compton Jr. Posse.

Found L.A. is a FREE, citywide event that showcases culturally dynamic neighborhoods through the eyes of residents, public figures and renowned artists, who generously volunteer to share their unique perspective and passion for their neighborhood.  Found L.A. is open to anyone who wants to organize a tour of their neighborhood, and anyone who wants to learn more about the vast expanse that is Los Angeles.
Connecting Angelenos to the people and places that make up the city is central to LA Commons’ mission and this annual day of tours is a keystone event in raising the awareness of L.A. Commons’ goals.
Los Angeles culture seekers will be able to explore historic boulevards, sample delicious foods in unknown corridors, and hear little known stories, among many other adventures in communities all around the city. This October 19th, explore the celebrated Central Avenue, sample tacos along iconic Cesar Chavez, stroll the backyard of vibrant Cal State Northridge along Reseda Boulevard, and get to know Gaffey Street, the historic gateway to L.A.’s Harbor. Tour details will be regularly updated on the website.

Last year, with the event theme of the L.A. River, participants visited a traditional Japanese garden, heard from artists who created the Great Wall of Los Angeles, learned about the Arroyo Seco, and explored Compton Creek and its surroundings. Past installments of Found L.A. have included a walk down Central Avenue with former Councilwoman Jan Perry, a visit to the L.A. River via Atwater with now-Mayor Eric Garcetti, and a presentation by Compton’s new Mayor Aja Brown on her urban planning goals.

All tours are open and FREE to the public; people may sign up for multiple tours. For information on how to sign up offer a tour, please contact Karen Mack at LA Commons: Karen@lacommons.org.
