LA Commons

We engage communities in artistic and cultural expression that tells their unique stories to foster dialogue, interaction and a better Los Angeles. We are grounded in the philosophy that culture is a valuable community resource, art is a powerful tool for telling stories to ignite change, and artists play an important role in community development.

    Crenshaw Stories Power the Vote

    The historic heart of Black LA, Crenshaw is ground zero for the pandemic’s inequitable impact based on systemic disinvestment, marginalization and now, accelerating displacement. Crenshaw Stories Power the Vote recognizes the 2022 election as a critical opportunity to create common purpose and demand action through a grassroots narrative change process led by local artists and youth. Vibrant art activations amplify our stories, build connection and inspire voter turnout for election results that drive the change we envision in our neighborhood.
