WORLDS OF HOMELESSNESS - DAY 5&6: Festival For All Skid Row Artists

The Festival for All Skid Row Artists is a two-day festival of performing and visual art with plenty of music, showcasing the diverse range of talents among Skid Row residents. Taking place in Gladys Park, the festival has become one of the most anticipated grassroots cultural events in Skid Row where over 100 Skid Row Artists perform or display their artwork to enthusiastic audiences. Thanks to extensive street outreach, many people went on-stage for the very first time and got in the mix of the vibrant Skid Row artistic culture. The participants of the Worlds of Homelessness project joined the festivities.

The Los Angeles Poverty Department partners with Studio 526 and United Coalition East Prevention Project (UCEPP) to produce the Festival. For the 2019 Festival, the Goethe-Institut was an additional producing partner.

The “Worlds of Homelessness” event series opened with music by the LA Playmakers and the Playmakers also closed out the Festival on Sunday Afternoon. The LA Playmakers are a local band founded by Joseph Warren and Stan Watson years ago. The band members were members of the Praise and Worship Team at Skid Row’s Central City Church of the Nazarene. The accomplished professional musicians have played with a number of well-known jazz and pop music figures.
