INTO ACTION is a celebration of community power + cultural resistance taking place January 13-21 in Downtown Los Angeles. This gathering is dedicated to engaging artists and activists to shine a light on injustices, galvanize communities, and turn ideas into action. INTO ACTION combines world-class art — creative installations, powerful panels, music performances — and citizens, in a nine-day festival uniting art, activism, and community. INTO ACTION is a gathering for those eager to shape the world in which we live. This is where creativity and organizing come together to create lasting change. INTO ACTION is free and open to the public. This January, we illuminate our resilience, and we take back our hope.
