You're Invited: The Final Event for "Going Gray in LA" by Bear Guerra

In the coming decades, Los Angeles is going to look a lot grayer. A County’s senior population will doubl in the next 15 year. ousing, health care and the job market will have to adapt to a population that is working and living longer in a city built for the young. 

On Sunday, April 9th, 2017, join us at Los Angeles' Japanese American National Museum for a live conversation and exhibit documenting an 18-mile avenue stretch of Broadway, cutting through the working class heart of the city; from Lincoln Heights, into Chinatown, through Downtown, and on to South LA.

 

"Going Gray in LA" moves down Broadway to Downtown by Bear Guerra

Our year-long multimedia collaboration with KCRW Public Radio, Going Gray in LA, continues this month with new stories about senior hunger, about Little Tokyo as a great example for aging in place, and about a man whose life changed when Fidel Castro came to power in 1959. Thank you to the Eisner Foundation for the support.

Bringing LA's Chinatown and Little Tokyo together through Takachizu by Bear Guerra

On January 14th, we'll be joining a group of artists, storytellers and activists to host Takachizu: Staying Home.

The gathering in English, Cantonese and Japanese will feature photos, multimedia, food, conversation and personal stories about what it means to make a home in a big city like LA--and what it takes to stay there.
