Promise Zone Arts Live

Celebrating the cultural treasures of Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Mayor’s Promise Zone Office is gearing up to support the final presentation for Promise Zone Arts (PZA). Over the past 2 years, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with LA Commons and the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, has been engaging residents to identify Cultural Treasures in the Promise Zone, and mapping the artists, cultural practitioners, spaces, and cultural events that make the Promise Zone so culturally vibrant.

You can see a short video for the project here

You can also see the project website, where cultural treasures are highlighted, here.

Please mark your calendars! A Final Showcase and concert will highlight artists recognized as Cultural Treasures, and celebrate the unique cuisine, art, and traditions in the Promise Zone.

Promise Zone Arts (PZA) is a two-year, multi-neighborhood cultural asset mapping and activation initiative administered by theCity of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) co-created by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts and LA Commons that utilizes cultural mapping strategies, ethnographic documentation, community gatherings, and free public events to identify and support the artists, cultural practitioners, tradition bearers, and sites that Los Angeles Promise Zone neighborhood residents deem significant.

Promise Zone Arts seeks to illuminate the value of neighborhood cultural assets from the perspectives of residents, and make the cultural treasures they identify visible and recognized as essential in making our communities more sustainable and livable.

Invest in California’s cultural wealth.

Every gift is a commitment to a culture bearer, and the people of California.
