Through multilingual, environmentally-focused cultural events in public and/or accessible green spaces, this project aims to lead a call to action, supported by Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils representing over 3.5 million residents, for the L.A. City Council to adopt an "Arts for Parks" (campaign title TBD) program. This program, developed through Arts for L.A.’s ACTIVATE Cultural Policy Leadership program, would be explicitly multilingual, centered around, and facilitated by communities of color and low income populations, and focused on supporting the sense of connection, stewardship, and ownership of our green spaces as practiced by exciting communities.
