Through the +LAB initiative, LTSC teams up with artists and arts institutions to find imaginative ways to empower the Little Tokyo community.
Little Tokyo art institutions and artists have long helped sustain the community by elevating its culture, stories and identity. In collaborating with these partners, LTSC seeks to bolster their important work while gaining fresh insights into our own community development efforts.
What does it mean to be part of a community? How can we protect the rich heritage of our ethnic neighborhoods and promote their future viability? These are essential questions artists and community organizers have considered for years. +LAB is about merging these two worlds, uncovering fresh solutions and deriving power from that synergy.
+LAB 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.
