Small Talks : LA – Development. Displacement. Community: A workshop highlighting Inglewood and other evolving communities in LA
Hosted in collaboration with the Free School of Architecture, the 2nd installment of this pop-up series will be centered aroundthe recent development in Inglewood as a result of the new stadium planned for the region and the controversial course of gentrification that is challenging Los Angeles County at large. Through a workshop-based format, the goal of this pop-up is to educate ourselves on the effect that new development has on communities. Various locally-based organizers will be present to shed light on their knowledge & experiences. Please join us to engage with other like-minded Angeleno’s and share your perspective on the current evolution of our city.
small talks:LA originated as a response to the current demand for political/social organization among motivated individuals who care for the diversity and future of our cities. In contrast to a conventional lecture series, small talks:LA promotes the collective over the individual and allows for equal participation/engagement among all participants no matter your profession or background.

Come and enjoy this post July 4th/Independence Day weekend with beverages and food as we discuss how to make our cities a better place. Everyone is highly encouraged to bring their own refreshments in this BBQ like setting. Onward.
