Coming Up Next
This year, we are calling upon our key partners to rally friends, family, and networks to support LA Commons’ work at the intersection of health, community leadership, and arts/culture. We hope to raise $15,000 by the end of June!
The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘Seeding Change,’ as LA Commons continues to figuratively [and sometimes literally] sow seeds throughout LA. In light of a socially, economically, and geographically fragmented Los Angeles, LA Commons seeds changes by:
SPROUTING GROWTH, NURTURING YOUTH ARTISTS AND COMMUNITIES & INVESTING IN FLOURISHING NEIGHBORHOODS!
Our campaign will culminate with our 13th annual Day of the Ancestors: Festival of Masks, themed ‘Seeds of the Village’, which centers on Leimert Park Ancestors who planted the seeds of art, culture and wellness and features artists and cultural workers who carry their vision forward. Six weeks of workshops free to the community in West African and Diaspora Dance and Drum, Mask Making and Gardening Arts will culminate in the festival that features procession, performances and a village feast. Due to your continued support, our program will directly impact approximately 3,000 participants and an additional 10,000 - 20,000 indirectly via social media!
