It's that time again! We have had a busy summer with lots of exciting projects and activities, so please join us for our September Happy Hour and come find out what we've been up to all summer. Whether you already volunteer or just want to learn more, we'd love to see you, so please join us for some good food, drinks, and conversation!
Help us envision the new home for an eclectic artist community in a former MTA Bus Depot in the heart of Venice by providing an affordable housing master plan proposal and conceptual design for the Venice Art community. We will be going to VENTURA, CA, about an hour and a half north of Venice Beach for a precedent tour of artist housing. The site visit will provide an overview of the project and some discussion of task and team schedules. RSVP to our Facebook event here or go to www.oacla.org and click on "Get Involved" then choose "Venice Artist’s Colony".
Join us for some summer fun and outreach! We are looking for volunteers for our mural painting and planting project at Avalon Carver! The first phase is the 3rd weekend of July and you can help out for as long or as little as you like. We will be painting the first day from 9a - 4p and planting the second day at the same times. RSVP to our Facebook event here or click on "Get Involved" and choose "Avalon Carver Community Center - Mural Painting and Planting Day".
We are so excited to announce that we have received a $5,000 grant from the Fringe Foundation that will help fund our Avalon Carver Community Center project as well as educational events (like our Connecting LA panel discussion last year) for all of you! We are so grateful to The Fringe Foundation for believing in and supporting the work we do and we are looking forward to using these funds to help make positive change in our LA community!
Come hang out with the OACLA Leadership Board on May 17 for our bi-monthly Happy Hour! This one is at the awesome Angel City Brewery in the Arts District / Los Angeles. Bring your ideas and questions - it will be a wonderful night of speakeasy conversations and laughs.
Join us for the kick-off meeting of this great project where we team up with Engineers without Borders to help re-design the Hidden Springs site in the Angeles National Forest.
