LOS ANGELES—Centering the Masses: Lucha La Mic

May 29 @ 7:30 pm

LOS ANGELES—Visual Communications partners with the Asian Pacific American-centric Potluck Podcast Collective to present a series of live podcasts featuring special guests in deep conversation around important issues of Little Tokyo and other communities. Imagined as a wrestling-styled “Square Circle” and slated for select Wednesdays, LUCHA LA MIC will engage podcasters from the Potluck Podcast Collective with compelling and sometimes divisive guests in front of a live audience. LUCHA LA MIC will echo the long legacy of progressive radio broadcast advocacy at venues such as Pacifica Radio, and will utilize this relatively new form of media art to democratize the underserved voices of our communities.

Guests to be announced.

Presented by Visual Communications, CENTERING THE MASSES is a series of free pop-up events and programs at 341 FSN, in the heart of Los Angeles Little Tokyo’s historic district. This nine-week series running from April 5th to May 30, 2019 will bring together artists, cultural workers, entertainment professionals, and civic personalities to celebrate and explore all the ways that motion pictures and media artworks impact our lives. Through intimate conversation, screenings, and visual art presentations, this project will be a space to address the current realities of a community that sits at the crossroads of shifting racial, generational, and economic conditions.
