Well I’d love to pitch an idea of mobile grocery stores for disadvantaged neighborhoods. Take 2 or 3 buses that can be stocked with healthy food at a reasonable price and that would be able to take SNAP. So instead of people have to pay overpriced amount of money for food and staples instead the trucks would have scheduled stops. My other idea is to have a voter education and registration program. So many people don’t seem to understand the basics of the three branch of the Federal Government, how local elected officials directly effect their lives and comprehending all of the ballot propositions.
The deadline was extended to 5/10/2017 read below for details. What would you like to pitch leave your ideas below ….
In early 2016 we launched the second phase—Making LA: Connect, Flourish, Thrive, Prosper—with the plan to build upon our successful programming series at a design charrette to craft proposals for real-world solutions to issues facing LA.
Then we had a presidential election.
As a proposed budget seeks to completely eliminate federal funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, we realized that charrettes and proposals would not be enough. The de LaB community is made up of designers, architects, and artists who are out in the city working hard on real-world solutions today. We want to amplify your efforts and bring four projects—your projects—to life.
We want to show the powerful impact that the NEA has on our cities by empowering four projects that help LA connect, flourish, thrive, and prosper.
On Saturday, June 10, Making LA Together will feature teams pitching projects in front of a live audience that address issues of Transportation, Water, Density, and Community in Los Angeles. A panel of experts will ask questions and offer commentary about the projects, and the audience will vote for the best project in each of the four areas. We’ll work to make the winning ideas happen with a project fee of $2500 and the help of volunteers from the de LaB community. In addition to workshops and volunteer days, de LaB will also host four programs to introduce the public to each of the four completed projects.
Deadline extended to Wednesday, May 10 at 5pm! Fill out this brief form telling us about your project, including a 200-word description and which area your project addresses (Transportation, Water, Density, or Community).
When you submit your form, email *one* image of your project (can be a rendering, photo, drawing, sketch) to hello @ designeastoflabrea.org
Finalists selected to present at Making LA Together will be announced by Friday, May 12 and asked to prepare a 5-minute, fast-pitch presentation with visuals onstage at the Making LA Together event. (Think Project Runway meets Shark Tank).
What kind of projects are you looking for?
Show us how NEA’s funding can solve a problem and create real-world change for an LA community east of La Brea. The only real qualification is that the project must address one of the challenge areas (Transportation, Water, Density, or Community) and be easily replicable elsewhere in the city.
Some examples of projects might be: A wayfinding system (Transportation); a parkway stormwater garden (Water); a creative adaptation of a parking space (Density); a neighborhood mural (Community).
How many people can be on a team?
As few or as many as you like, although only two people can be onstage to present.
Can I submit multiple projects?
Team members can only work on one project.
Can it be something I’m already working on?
Definitely. We are particularly interested in projects that have already been tested elsewhere in LA and can easily be rolled out in multiple locations.
Does the project absolutely have to happen somewhere east of La Brea?
Yes—we will only look at projects that will happen east of La Brea. South of Century Boulevard that’s east of Hawthorne. North of Franklin Avenue that’s east of Vineland. Even if part of your project is east of these boundaries, we’ll accept it.
Who decides which projects are selected?
Finalists will be selected to present by de LaB’s hosts and board members. The winners in each area will be decided by a live vote from the audience at the event.
If you have a question we should answer here, send us an email at hello @ designeastoflabrea.org
I’m so excited about the upcoming Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival this April 27th with films that represent diversity from across the world. I’ve attended over the years and have always been impressed by the selection of films form comedy to documentary to drama that truly represent the diversity that often is overlooked in entertainment. I also recommend attendance of the C3 Conference that will focus on Future Forward a full day of panels with creatives from behind the camera talking issues that are important to those starting out in the business as well as established creatives.
FREE PROGRAM. “Bronzeville, Little Tokyo” sheds light on an overlooked moment in history when Japanese and Japanese-Americans were displaced and African-Americans moved into Little Tokyo. To honor this period, there will be a special two-day program featuring an interactive media installation, a 360° virtual reality presentation, and a live Jazz performance on Historic First Street North.
A film essay looking at 100 years of Hawai‘i in film, explores issues of representation and gender. This filmic deconstruction is a lively, often infuriating examination of Hollywood’s portrayal of the islands, highlighting the essential necessity of homegrown filmmaking.
Three sassy sisters: Gendis (32), Ella (28), and Bebe (19), are very passionate about running their family boutique hotel by the beach in the eastern part of Indonesia’s archipelago. Their grandmother, however, is frustrated because she is unable to find the ideal matches for her granddaughters. Grandma doesn’t give up. Her ultimate goal in life is to find suitable men for her granddaughters.
A contemplative dialogue with the editors from some of the biggest box office animated/stop motion films in history – discussing the industry, their processes and their look into the future of animation. *Panels are not individually sold. The admission fee for one day will include all the panels on that day. The admission fee for both days will include all the panels of the C3 Conference.

I might have to buy a new tabletop book of President Trumps illuminating tweets from Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Shannon Wheeler. Shannon is publishing Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump with IDW’s imprint Top Shelf Productions this August 2017. The illustration of the President in 140-characters says a lot about not only the man but the people who voted for him to lead our country.
If you go to the link you can see a preview of the hardcover book which (to me) looks like a literal interpretation of his own words with a gentle bit of humor poking fun of the President’s love of the medium.
You may not know Shannon Wheeler by name or face (he is an artist) but he draws cartoons for the New Yorker, Mad and the Onion (not that Shannon is name dropping). I think rather you want to resist or a proud deplorable everyone will enjoy this book celebrating Donald Trump’s wit and believe in alternative facts. The book has a selection of Donald Trump’s most revealing tweets that will be imagined as cartoons giving a glimpse into how Shannon has read them revealing Donald Trump’s mind.
“Shannon Wheeler drew a book I wish I had thought of; that’s the ultimate compliment I can offer in 140 characters! #buyit #wheelerisagenius”
—Jack Ohman, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning
SHANNON WHEELER is an award-winning cartoonist best known as the creator of the satirical superhero Too Much Coffee Man, who has appeared around the world in comic books, newspapers, magazines, books, and even his very own opera.
