The Skid Row Arts Alliance is a consortium of artist-driven arts organizations, comprised of people living and working in Skid Row, working to create art and community in Skid Row. The purpose of Skid Row Arts Alliance is to knit the fabric of the Skid Row neighborhood through the creation of community wide arts projects. These projects bring together individuals living and working in Skid Row, including people not previously connected to community groups and services. The aim of the Alliance is to represent, amplify and celebrate the voices of the Skid Row community.
The Skid Row Arts Alliance commits to the ongoing work of assessing and responding to the history of an excluded and marginalized community. Collectively, we commit to sharing our resources, experiences, and insights in the interest of continuing transformative practices of artists and arts organizations. We continue our commitment to anti-racist work, gender inclusivity, prioritizing access, and diversifying leadership within our organizations. We commit to amplify and acknowledge the existing cultures of Skid Row, in an effort to support place-keeping for current housed and unhoused residents of Skid Row.
