Over 38 years of performances, projects, exhibitions, and history collecting by the Los Angeles Poverty Department are available for scholarly and causal research in the archive on the mezzanine level of the Skid Row History Museum and Archive.
Our archive is a testament to the importance of place-keeping in a community that has been under threat of displacement for decades and continues to affirm its existence through arts, activism and organizing. The archive is available to visitors by appointment.
If you are interested in volunteering in the archive, or starting an internship with us, please reach out us.
We welcome all community members, researchers, students, and visitors!
