This January, with the support of the James Irvine Foundation, Venice Arts is launching a new, unique program for low-income adults: The Community Story Lab, which will build off of Venice Arts’ long history working in participant-media and arts education. The Community Story Lab will explore new and dynamic ideas about community arts engagement working primarily with low-income adults, who will build knowledge and skills in media-based storytelling, aesthetics, and historic and contemporary practices, while actively collaborating with and learning from professional artists in the creation of a final work to be presented in April 2015, during Month of Photography Los Angeles.
Through the Community Story Lab, we hope to broaden the definition of creative communities and to share a plurality of community perspectives and stories created through active arts participation. The program will be free of charge to participants and all equipment and training will be provided.
