In Chinatown Los Angeles, there is an amazing space that we covered in Issue 11 of SFAQ describing their history and the programming they offer to the cultural landscape of Los Angeles.  This is a space that has more events than any other space I know and have become a central venue for artistic endeavors in LA.  Primarily focused on performance, music, and experimental exhibitions, Human Resources is a gem who’s now working toward establishing a residency program at their space.  They need your “votes” to get funding and get this residency rolling.  Its free to vote so don’t play the “im broke” card, and it’s easy so don’t play the “im too busy” card – it takes about 2 minutes. Read the information below and follow the link to show your support.

Human Resources:


We will use the LA2050 grant to provide 6 artists with financial, institutional, and facilities support during the upcoming year!  Help bring a major accolade to artists in our community!


Human Resources has been serving the LA community for 3 years, providing a much needed venue for experimental exhibition and performance programming.  From the deeply informed to the curious and enthusiastic, HRLA has cultivated a space fostering community and dialogue around progressive music, performance, and visual work.  We regard ourselves as providing much needed artist resources, including persistent effort in broadly presenting underexposed work.


Human Resources is a team of creative individuals which seeks to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression.


Human Resources is entirely volunteer run and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
