Arts and culture have the transformative power to advance equity in our communities and cities.

 

Creating Our Next LA is a multiplatform campaign that encourages civic engagement, healing, and change through art and dialogue. Our team of community artists and Youth Visionaries are engaging community members at cultural events throughout Los Angeles, asking them "What is your vision for a livable, healthy, and just Los Angeles?” Community responses are transformed into visual installations of art that reflect our shared imagining of an LA where we all thrive.

Alongside this collective visioning process, Creating Our Next LA connects Angelenos to our network of partners that are actively creating our next LA through transformative work.

 

Creating Our Next LA’s Youth Visionaries team are key in leading our collective visioning. Our youth visionaries gain skills in community engagement, campaign design, and creative advocacy. To apply to be on our youth team, fill out the interest form linked here.

"LA Commons is everything I have been searching for in this world. I feel so lucky and blessed to work with an organization that is changing the world by aggrandizing Angeleno voices, stories, cultures, art, people, and more"

- Alonzo, Youth Visionary
