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 ….

Deadline extended to Wednesday, May 10 at 5pm!

In 2015, design east of La Brea was honored to receive its second ArtWorks grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for our Making LA series. The first phase of Making LA explored the Los Angeles issues of TransportationWaterDensity and Community through a series of public programs, culminating in the Making LA conference in fall of 2014.

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.

Making LA Together will be held on the evening of Saturday, June 10 at City Market South, a brand-new creative space located in one of LA’s oldest produce markets, as part of the Los Angeles Design Festival. Here are more details about the event.

How to apply

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).

FAQ

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

In 1950 television was still in its infancy, but by 1960, televisions were present in 90 percent of American homes. Television provided the American public with a means to witness the struggle for civil rights nearly in real time and led a more informed society to enact social change.  In this workshop participants view and discuss important television clips from the Paley Center’s civil rights archive.

The Forum, “Expanding the Conversation: Asian Americans in Media,” is Designed to be a Solutions-Oriented Conversation

About the Status of Asian Americans Moving the Needle on Diversity and Inclusion in Hollywood is taking place on November 2nd. I’m very excited about this panel talking about the lack of diversity for Asian actors sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal and the Center for Asian American Media.

 

Image result for Center for Asian American Media “People are hungry for authentic representations of Asian Americans,” Stephen Gong, CAAM’s Executive Director, said. “CAAM is extremely proud to present this forum during a pivotal time in our nation. We believe that positive social change takes place not from above, but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously. We hope this conversation will spark real change within the media industry.”

 

Panelists for This Forum Include Sandra Oh (Sideways, Grey’s Anatomy), Grace Lee (Peabody Award-winning director of American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs), Karen Horne (SVP, Talent Development & Inclusion, NBCUniversal) and the moderator Richard Lui (MSNBC Anchor). This panel of talent from in front and behind the camera will offer will have a conversation about working in Hollywood.

 

It’s an important topic as our nation becomes more diverse and entertainment has to appeal to a global market. I strongly disagree with the belief that everyone’s default is a white man/woman. I enjoy seeing people of not only diverse backgrounds but telling stories from their point of view. It’s been over twenty years since an Asian American had a series on network TV and with the success of Fresh Off the Boat, Dr. Ken and Quantico hopefully will encourage Hollywood to not whitewash stories. If you look at the demographics Asians make up the largest growing ethnic group in the United States and more than half of the nation’s children under 18 are expected to be part of a minority race or ethnic group by 2020 (US Census). This is why Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are insisting on having a conversation about why their voices should be heard and seen!

Her other directing credits include the feature film JANEANE FROM DES MOINES, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival as well as AMERICAN ZOMBIE which premiered at Slamdance and is distributed by Cinema Libre. She is currently a Women at Sundance Fellow.

October 18th, 2013 by Cherry

I grew up loving comic books not as a artform but just as great escapist fun.  My favorite was PowerPac about kids with kickass powers.  Hmmm I was pretty

much an exclusive lover of comics with a similar theme of the powerless gaining powers.  I think it was because I felt so invisible as a kid the plain black chunky girl who was super shy, had a horrible speech impediment and no boys ever asked me out.  Well one did but he was so creepy and weird that I decided it was better to be alone.  I mean super uber creepy ala asked me to the prom and told me I HAD to have sex with him.  Ahhh no thank you!   Really all through middle school and high school my very best friend was the

comic book guy at the shop near my school.  Instead of buying lunch at the cafeteria I’d save my money and buy the Xmen, Spiderman, Teen Titans, The New Humans, Amethyst, L.E.G.I.O.N, Longshot (major crush on him!! tee hee), Firestorm, and all the ‘girl friendly’ books back in the day.  I had hundreds of them all kept in little plastic packets (purchased separately) and the official box from the shop.  Looking back I probaly spent enough money to have bought a cheap crappy used car in High School … I liked my comic books more than a car so no regrets!  So imagine my pleasure when I saw that PBS was running an homage to Superheros well I was all in especially with Liev hosting … <hubba hubba>

I missed the screening on October 15th  on PBS but don’t worry you can buy the DVD to see the golden age of comics from the beginning to now.  You can see a commercial on youtube to see what you missed.    It’s from the Emmy Award-winning producer/director Michael Kantor (BROADWAY: THE AMERICAN MUSICAL; MAKE ‘EM LAUGH: THE FUNNY BUSINESS OF AMERICA) and will have interviews from Stan Lee; actors Adam West (TV’s “Batman”) and Lynda Carter (“Wonder Woman”); Geoff Johns (chief creative officer, DC Comics), Jeph Loeb (head of television for Marvel Entertainment); Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) and cartoonist/author Jules Feiffer (the long-running strip “Feiffer”), as well as appearances by the late comic book icons Joe Simon (co-creator of Captain America) and Jerry Robinson (who helped create the Joker).   SUPERHEROES: A NEVER-ENDING BATTLE is the first documentary to examine the dawn of the comic book genre and its powerful legacy, as well as the evolution of the characters who leapt from the pages over the last 75 years and their ongoing worldwide cultural impact. It chronicles how these “disposable diversions” were subject to intense government scrutiny for their influence on American children and how they were created, in large part, by the children of immigrants whose fierce loyalty to a new homeland laid the foundation for a multi-billion-dollar industry that is now an influential part of our national identity

SUPERHEROES will be presented in three one-hour parts

PART ONE, 8 PM: “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” (1938-1958)

During the Depression, the popularity of dozens of superhero characters opens the door for a new generation of artists and writers. World War II creates a patriotic fervor for star-spangled adventurers to represent the American spirit at war and on the home front, but in the 1950s, superheroes are caught in the fire of government scrutiny and regulation. When the thrilling “Adventures of Superman” is broadcast on the new medium of television, America’s first and greatest superhero leads the entire comic book industry to renewed strength.

 

PART TWO, 9 PM: “Great Power, Great Responsibility” (1959-1977)

In the 1960s, a new breed of superhero emerges in the pages of Marvel Comics, inspired by the age of atomic energy and space travel and, in turn, inspiring the pop culture and pop artists of the time. Spider-Man, the Hulk and others are the first to have “problems” with which an adult audience can identify, and contemporary social issues make their way into comic books. Black powerhouses such as the Black Panther and Luke Cage appear on the scene, and the pages of “Green Lantern/Green Arrow” explode with relevant storylines as comic books are forced to confront the reality of an increasingly complex world.

 

PART THREE, 10 PM “A Hero Can Be Anyone” (1978-Present)

Modern enthusiasm for superheroes has been embraced in all forms of media and by all demographics, beginning with the historicSuperman movie featuring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel. In 1986, Batman is overhauled as The Dark Knight to reflect the nocturnal underside of his character, and Watchmen bring new sophistication to comic book narratives, illuminating a violent and politicized world. In the burgeoning new millennium, superheroes have taken over popular culture with feature films, television shows and video games complementing a new generation of web-based comics that bring superhero adventures to every corner of the world.

I recently went to Phoenix, AZ and got to enjoy a few shops in the art district and it got me thinking about the Made in America Pledge I saw on ABC World News with (my FAVORITE nighttime newscaster Diane Sawyer) and on Good Morning America (who I love to watch over coffee in the AM).  It got me to thinking how can I buy in America and satisfy my quirky style/taste??? Well  I checked out the shops and fell in love with the creative folks of Roosevelt Row.  They have a super fun event called First Fridays where people can stroll around the neighborhood and they have tons of food trucks.  It’s a great way for young people to get used to buying art that’s affordable.

So if your looking for holiday gifts check out the creative folks in Phoenix.  The items are handmade so they are one of a kind but if you want to order something check out their facebook pages or call them directly!

So check out the video of trip.  I have to say that I really enjoyed the city and the people they were very friendly.

Made Art Boutique had my FAVORITE item it’s a collection of robots made by a local man.  For the Christmas season he made robot winestoppers as well as super cool fridge magnets.  So if your a bit of a geek (like me) make sure you give her a call to order one for your science fiction fan boy or girl.  THEY will love you for the gift!!!

 

‘Made in America’ Pledge: What is American-Made in Your Home?

‘ABC World News’ and Diane Sawyer Want to Hear From You

In the global trade battle, you cast a vote every time you open your wallet. The decision? Whether you spend your money on products made in America or overseas. … continued
