In the weeks and months that passed since our Reciprocity: LA Artists Retreat, organized in collaboration with Asylum Arts, we were excited to watch the conversations and collaborations that sparked between participants in this growing, vibrant local community. We were also delighted to be able to support some of these fascinating ventures.
On April 24, a group of multidisciplinary artists will join forces at the Silver Lake Independent Jewish Community Center for an evening of writing, reading and sharing in the framework of The JCC for Vulnerability and Family Darkness, "a tongue-in-cheek response to the commonplace Jewish Community Center."
During this pop-up event, local writers will share original materials pertaining to familial and personal dysfunction and burdens. After the reading, the audience will be divided into small group, and they will be invited to reflect, write and share. More info here.
Organizing members are Alexander Nemser, B Neineth and Joel Gerber.
In March, we were delighted to support Rachel Kann's Realize Paradise Vol. 1: Step Into the Sea, a participatory experience organized in collaboration with Reciprocity alumni Jeremy Lawrence and Hillel Smith, during which Kann facilitated a sensorial multidisciplinary workshop at Mishkan Tephilo.
Over 40 people attended this pre-Passover event, designed to create a "feel free" environment, consisting of spoken word, poetry, music, visual arts and more.
Other news about these artists, events - and more! - to follow.
