341 FSN

341 FSN is a collaborative and experimental space designed to explore community control and self-determination in Little Tokyo and at First Street North. LTSC owns and operates 341 FSN, which provides our +LAB project with a unique asset for promoting neighborhood and community engagement.

Organizations that will be partnering with LTSC to activate the 341 FSN space include: Japanese American National Museum, Little Tokyo Community Council, Little Tokyo Service Center Small Business Assistance, Sustainable Little Tokyo – Arts Action Committee and Visual Communications. Their activities will seek to do at least one of the following:

  • Promote artistic and cultural experiences that protect the cultural and historic identity of Little Tokyo
  • Share community members’ voices and stories to promote and empower Little Tokyo
  • Inform participants about the Little Tokyo neighborhood, its history, and ways to help shape its future
  • Build connections between artists, community members, and organizations
  • Incorporate creative practices to positively impact Little Tokyo

+LAB’s 341 FSN is funded by a Community Development Investments (CDI) grant from ArtPlace America. LTSC was one of six organizations selected for the program, which explores how community-based organizations—not previously focused on arts and culture—can make the arts a sustainable part of their work.
