MOCA Community Day

All Ages

MOCA joins forces with community partners My Friend’s Place, Midnight Mission, Downtown Women’s Center, Skid Row Housing Trust, OBEY GIANT, MADWORKSHOP, and KCRW for a day of service, discussion, and creative activation around LA’s homelessness crisis. How can LA’s creative communities be changemakers in this arena and what can these communities teach us about their experiences? This daylong event hopes to create a larger, more inclusive conversation around the issue by offering and encouraging meaningful action that will create a safer and healthier city for all. Please visit for a full schedule.
