The Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) presents the 8th annual Festival for All Skid Row Artists on Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22, from 1–5pm each day. The Festival for All Skid Row Artists is a two-day festival of performing and visual art with plenty of music, showcasing the diverse range of talents among Skid Row residents. Taking place in Gladys Park (corner of 6th Street and Gladys Avenue) in L.A.’s Skid Row, the festival has become one of the most anticipated grassroots cultural events in the area. At last year’s festival over 150 Skid Row Artists performed or displayed their artwork to enthusiastic audiences. Many, such as Franc’s Melting Pot, Unkal Bean, Gary Brown and the Nu-Bluez Ologist, will be back and Crushow The Last Dragon will perform a song dedicated to our MC KevinMichael Key, who died this summer. A select number of artists from outside Skid Row, including Street Symphony, Raspin Stuwart and the Brasil Brasil Cultural Center’s Capoeira group will perform and lead workshops as well.
Festival attendees are invited to participate in the workshops and creativity stations and to give their input for SKID ROW NOW & 2040, a community plan in response to The Department of City Planning’s community plan for Skid Row. There will be creative stations for writing and painting, a guided meditation and sitting yoga workshop and poet Jen Hofer will write letters and poems in English & Spanish on demand. LAPD’s Festival for All Skid Row Artists gives audiences a chance to hear what you usually don't hear about Skid Row: that it is a community rich with talent!
Los Angeles Poverty Department celebrates and preserves the rich artistic heritage of Skid Row and since 2009 has kept a registry of Skid Row artists, which now numbers more than 600. LAPD is a theater company comprised primarily of low income and homeless people living in Los Angeles’ Skid Row. Founded in 1985, LAPD creates performances and multidisciplinary artworks that connect the experience of people living in poverty to the social forces that shape their lives and communities. LAPD’s works express the realities, hopes, dreams and rights of people who live and work in L.A.'s Skid Row.
LAPD’s Skid Row History Museum & Archive - located at 250 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012 - operates as an archive, exhibition-, performance- and meeting space curated by LAPD. It foregrounds the distinctive artistic and historical consciousness of Skid Row and functions as a means for exploring the mechanics of displacement in an age of immense income inequality by mining a neighborhood’s activist history and amplifying effective community strategies. Exhibitions focus on grassroots strategies that have preserved the neighborhood from successive threats of gentrification and displacement, to be studied for current adaptation and use.
Festival for All Skid Row Artists is produced by Los Angeles Poverty Department with partners United Coalition East Prevention Project (UCEPP) and Lamp Arts Program. This year’s festival is made possible with the support of the Department of Cultural Affairs of the City Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, The California Arts Council’s Local Impact grant, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council and the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
