As a Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture Creative Strategist with the Department of Aging and Disability services, I work with 4 different senior and community centers in Los Angeles County District 1 to integrate arts, culture, and creative practice into the everyday operations of the center.
East L.A. Community Center: We developed a series of workshops in order to build community buy-in for an intergenerational community garden. The workshops culminated in a garden build day and a community-created zine. Collaborators: Leo Alas, Forever Dominguez, Marlene Aguilar, Daisy Echeverri, MoonJar Designs, Joel Garcia
Potrero Heights Senior and Community Center: We supported the center’s arts events, brought in guest artists to activate the outdoor ampitheater area, and created a vinyl installation showcasing the vibrant participants and contributors to Potrero Heights Senior and Community Center. Collaborators: Leo Alas, Forever Dominguez, Freedom Drum Circles, Boone Nguyen
