50 years of the Sister City Agreement Los Angeles and Berlin

October 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Sister City Agreement between Los Angeles and Berlin. If you look at their history, architecture and climate, these cities are unlike sisters. But there is a common denominator. Both cities cherish freedom, diversity and tolerance. And, the city of Angels and the German capital are home to the arts and creative industries.

Encompassing a variety of cultural activities, ‘Berlin Lab’ – a two-day festival – will be held at LOT 613 in the Downtown LA Arts District on October 4th and 5th. ‘Berlin Lab’ is an immersive experience that celebrates the lineage and synergy between the sister cities with a unique cross-metropolis exchange, five decades in the making.
