Festival for All Skid Row Artists
Each 3rd weekend in October
Coming up: 8th Festival for all Skid Row Artists
October 21 & 22, 2017 each day from 1-5pm
Since 2010 Los Angeles Poverty Department produces the Festival for All Skid Row Artists every 3rd weekend of October in Gladys Park on Skid Row (corner 6th Street and Gladys Avenue). The Festival encourages known neighborhood artists and identifies and brings together arts makers who are unknown even in their own Skid Row neighborhood. LAPD collects information about the artists, documents their work and creates an artists’ registry.
The 8th 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, California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, The Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the Office of Council District 14.
