Going Gray in LA travels to the Los Angeles Public Library by Ruxandra Guidi

Following Broadway, an 18-mile avenue that cuts through the working-class heart of Los Angeles, last year we journeyed from Lincoln Heights, into Chinatown, through Downtown, and on to South LA to find out how our city is changing and what makes life worth living — as we grow old in Los Angeles. This photo exhibit will live at the first floor galleries of the LA Public Library downtown from October 6, 2017 until January 25, 2018. Free and open to all ages!

We'll be collaborating with KCRW in Los Angeles starting this April by Bear Guerra

We are so happy to announce that starting in April, we will be collaborating with KCRW's Independent Producer Project on a year-long project! We'll be telling stories about growing old in the city of youth, and will be eager to hear of anyone you know who might be worth talking to --or picking their brain-- on this subject. See you all in LA.

 

Balu Wala, or the Kuna Good Life by Bear Guerra

Our latest piece done with the support of a Mongabay Special Reporting Initiative fellowship is out:

At 85 years old, Don Jesús is finally realizing one of his lifelong dreams: to formally teach Kuna, also known as Guna, traditions to the next generation of boys and girls. Every week, he illustrates and jots down definitions of dozens of artifacts, plants, and customs that have been integral parts of his culture for hundreds of years. By putting them down on paper, he’s preparing for his next weekly class, but also, keeping a record before he forgets. He’s doing this to make sure his people don’t forget as well.
