Spring 2018 – Legato Studios – Arts District, Los Angeles

“…Los Angeles, as cities go, is an especially tough nut to crack.” – Christopher Hawthorne, LA Times

Hosted by Designing in Color, the kickoff to small talks:LA focused on the cultural, economical, and environmental diversity of Los Angeles, unpacking the asylums that discourage interaction amongst our communities. Through various forms of engaging media, the goal of this forum/mixer was to rally up and stir conversation that could generate change. small talk:LA gathered a diverse group of architects, artists, engineers, and urban planners in an evening of conversation about the city. They proceeded to think, pair, share, and organize to make better spaces for all people.

Artists represented include Candyce Fabre, Thomas Ribas Ferrer, Off the Wall Graffiti, and Piece by Piece.
