Coming off our amazing We Rise: Creating Our Next LA project last Spring, we were ready for the next phase. As luck would have it, we got a call from Yo-Yo Ma ‘s team in July to explore a partnership as part of his Bach Project. He’s performing the Bach Suites in cities around the world and linking with local organizations to bring cross-sector groups together to explore the question: how can culture help us imagine, create and build a better future than the one we are experiencing right now. Last week we spearheaded a “Day of Action” with him and 20 movers and shakers from LA, providing an incredible opportunity to share stories and think creatively towards a more people-centered city. And at the end of that magical day, all are committed to join us to Create The Next LA. We hope you will too!


"The shared understanding that culture generates in these divisive times can bind us together as one world, and guide us to political and economic decisions that benefit the entire species. We are all cultural beings — let’s explore how culture connects us and can help to shape a better future.”
