Cultural Assets Along the River

John Arroyo's thesis blog,"Culture in Concrete: Art and the Re-imagination of the Los Angeles River as Civic Space," came to our attention because of its relevant featured content based around the L.A. River.

"Cultural Asset Mapping on the LA River," was one of many posts made by John. Click to view all entries from "Mental Maps of the L.A. River" or view John's blog.


Ron, a river enthusiast, would like the LA River to focus on inter-generational community needs, including community gardens, affordable housing, street vending, recreational opportunities, green jobs, leadership development, and concerts and arts opportunities.
One of my favorite notes Rob has written states, "NOTE: It's already an extremely vibrant and fantastic community."

Thanks to John Arroyo and CoLab Radio for sharing the research.
