Invigorate our communities with shared access to the arts, culture, education and recreation.

The LA River is a platform with which we can inspire and enrich people’s lives through community programming. We have started researching and assembling various groups and organizations, and made an inventory of events that already exist along the LA River and throughout the County to create a range of diverse opportunities that appeal to the widest audience.

Our ambition is to develop year-round programming that makes the river a destination across all 51 miles, embracing location-based interests as well as ways to unite our region through shared experiences in the arts, culture, education and recreation.

Initial efforts have already manifested with River LA Runners, a family-friendly community running program that showcases the unique sense of place along the river and River LA Talks (in development), a quarterly series hosting a network of community members, entrepreneurs, students, creative professionals and local leaders as key participants of the river revitalization movement.The concept is to build an ongoing forum for creative community dialogue around challenges and opportunities that we face along the LA River.
