Community Event & Volunteer Opportunity:
We Rise LA 2019
Dates: May 18-27, 2019
Location: 1262 Palmetto Street, LA CA 90013
WE RISE is a 10-day pop-up immersive experience that brings together LA’s diverse community to explore our collective power to live lives of purpose and engagement. Through powerful programming, performances, immersive workshops, and a world-class art exhibition, we seek to embolden individuals and families to find help, reach out to help others and demand systemic change in order to address the critical need for early intervention, treatment and care for Mental wellbeing.
WE RISE brings together artists, activists, service providers, and community members to raise awareness about available resources designed to support a sense of belonging, meaning, and purpose. Join us for 40+ hours of educational workshops, exciting performances, community town halls, intimate conversations, and a world-class art gallery full of contemplative, inspiring art.
The WE RISE exhibition and event space is designed specifically to welcome all people. In addition to fully accessible facilities, the space features male, female and gender-neutral restrooms.
WE RISE is FREE and open to the public. WE RISE is made possible by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health with support from the Mental Health Services Act.
18+ are eligible to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering, see information here: https://werise.la/volunteer/.
