The moment it became clear that the pandemic would keep us from physically visiting our local Boyle Heights libraries or community events to provide ongoing free workshops and play readings, we quickly began working to find creative ways to continue supporting local playwrights and storytellers. Community Stories is our new series of artistic storytelling, told through a mix of short and long-form multimedia that are extremely timely and represent a range of perspectives and emotions.
There’s something for everyone. Enjoy!
The Library Play Readings go digital! Local theatre arts partners take a play and create a digital version for all to enjoy.
A wide-range of short stories written by local playwrights interpreted into multimedia short-form videos.
Documenting the times, community members share their stories.
Taking the free community workshops online!
