*No RSVP needed
Please join us for The We in Me: Embodying Empathy on Thursday Nov 4, 2021, from 6-9pm at The Box gallery’s parking lot during National Homelessness Awareness Month. Embodying Empathy is an evening of programming that centers empathy as a pathway towards civic engagement with performance, movement, embodiment, conversation, and music.
Embodying Empathy will take place in The Box’s large rectangular parking lot and showcase a two-story model home from artist Corazón del Sol’s low-income housing project, Jardin de Estrellas. Jardin des Estrellas is del Sol’s community-focused project inspired in response to lack of low-income housing opportunities in Los Angeles, done in collaboration with Oasis Cannabis and ARCspace. del Sol will introduce the project and a model home prototype will be onsite for viewing by program guests.
The evening’s programming will include a performance of excerpts form Los Angeles Poverty Department‘s latest performance The New Compassionate Downtown; an embodied practice led by Jay Carlon; a conversation between Corazón, Jay, Pastor Cue–founder of the “Church Without Walls” which serves those experiencing homeless in DTLA’s Skid Row–and the audience, facilitated by Bernard Brown; and music by Cubano Percussion.
This event is a part of The We in Me, homeLA’s pilot education program that considers homelessness through the lens of empathy and civic engagement. The We in Me furthers homeLA’s mission to promote intersectionality and cultivate inclusivity through the embodied exchange of ideas around varied contextual imaginings of “home.”

The We in Me: Embodying Empathy is produced in partnership with The Box and The Box artists, Corazón del Sol and Los Angeles Poverty Department.
