South LA as a Resource

Let's face it, we live in amazing city! Los Angeles has so many wonderful opportunities and activities that are available. However, one doesn't always have to go out of their way because also, let's keep it real, getting anywhere in LA is a mission.

So why not explore in our own backyards? South (Central) Los Angeles, has a rich cultural history. Our community is such a natural blend of different cultures and decades of folks who turn the very little they have into creative energies that we see all around us.

Check out this map, I've compiled of local arts organizations in the area. We don't have many, but the ones we do have are amazing.
