The Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) presents the 12th annual Festival for All Skid Row Artists on Saturday, October 16 from 12 noon to 5pm.
The festival features non-stop performing with plenty of music, and wall to wall visual art.
Taking place in Gladys Park, October 16 from 12 noon to 5pm., the festival is one of the most anticipated grassroots cultural events in Skid Row where over 100 Skid Row Artists perform or display their artwork to enthusiastic audiences.
Many festival veterans are preparing new acts and works of art, while some brave newbies will get on-stage for the very first time to make their contribution to the vibrant mix that is Skid Row artistic culture. 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.
Free Covid testing and vaccinations will be offered as well as “Skid Row Artist, Menacing Cool” face masks.
LAPD partners with Studio 526 (the art project of The People Concern) and United Coalition East Prevention Project (UCEPP) to produce the festival.
Festival attendees are invited to participate in a range of artist facilitated workshops and creativity stations.
