We Rise 2019 kicked off its limited time immersive pop-up art exhibition on Friday night in the heart of the downtown LA Arts District!
This Friday night in Los Angeles, We Rise began its 10-day engagement for the local community to experience. The opening night party was just a glimpse of what We Rise is set out to be. We Rise presented a beautiful debut of art full of expression and messages, to a class where you can create your own art pieces, to various photo opportunities with the artwork, and not to mention live performances by Cuco and Jarina De Marco. The night naturally radiated a positive and empowering environment.
Guests were able to make their way to any of the setups at the We Rise event. As they made their way from room to room and into the main event space, those in attendance were offered bite-size snacks and agua frescas. Throughout the evening everyone there couldn’t stop raving about how amazing the event was. The party opened up with a special performance by a Los Angeles indigenous tribe, as they partnered in agreement for the need of awareness and healing within the native community as well. From there, multiple speakers shared what the We Rise event was about and what they hoped would happen as a result from the event. A theme that was shared throughout the event, and can also be found on their website, is “Envisioning what is possible when everyone feels a sense of belonging, connection, meaning, and purpose is the first step in creating new realities. We can manifest a future where our mental health and our communities are at the center of our well being.”
We Rise is a professional art gallery, infused with live performances, interactive activities, and educational workshops with the purpose to bring awareness to any and all mental health issues. The mission of We Rise is to create a discussion about mental health, to provide a unique safe space and to shine a light on the mental health issues within the community but also share the resources readily available to everyone.
We Rise is a one of a kind experience that every LA local or visitor should visit. The exhibition will be in the Downtown LA Arts district until May 27th. Admission is free and open to the public each evening and weekends. To find more information about the event and amazing programming visit: https://werise.la/schedule/
