Artistas del Barrio: Neighborhood Artists is a collaborative art initiative that engages artists of all skill levels and community members in Los Angeles, CA in an effort to bring more attention to the social justice issues that marginalized communities are working on. Artistas del barrio aims to do this and to bring awareness to the importance of celebrating ethnic diversity through art events and workshops. This group is composed of artists from historically marginalized communities in Los Angeles that will provide free events and workshops to their communities. This program will serve as a platform for artists to start their careers and network with other artists and arts organizations. Ultimately, we will give resources to aspiring artists to bring art programs and events to marginalized communities.
