The Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) presents the 6th annual Festival for All Skid Row Artists on Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, 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 90 Skid Row Artists performed or displayed their artwork to enthusiastic audiences. Many festival attendees participated in the workshops and creativity stations facilitated by the artists. LAPD’s Festival for All Skid Row Artists gives audiences a chance to hear what you usually don’t hear about Skid Row, it is a community rich with talent!
