The Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association (LARABA) is a coalition of diverse community leaders who are united by their passionate commitment to the Arts District (AD) as a vibrant jewel of Los Angeles. Within the neighborhood that is the AD, thrives a potent ecosystem of voices, creativity and artists of all mediums.
LARABA is an open forum of community advocacy, fierce protection of public safety, environmental guardianship, community well-being, wise land use, and intelligent public policy which supports the highest good of all inhabitants of the Arts District. The unique legacy and booming growth of the AD necessitates thoughtful stewardship which upholds the soul of its neighborhood; LARABA ardently supports a healthy evolution of the Arts District so that it may continue to inspire our city and our world through its many prismatic expressions of the imperative relationship between art and society.
The Arts District has a rich history and bright future. Our projects protect both.
Our community meetings are lively gatherings where you can hear about the latest plans, the biggest challenges, and the current pulse of the Arts District.
From art exhibitions to a growing farmers market, we create and support events that enrich our diverse community.
As history repeats itself, we are faced with important questions. Can we afford to live, work or even eat here? Who speaks for us? Are galleries hidden behind bars? Are historic buildings being replaced by plastic condos?
Come join us and together we will look up towards the face of the future, grounded in the foundation of the past.
