WE RISE: 10-day interactive event


May 19, 2018 • 10:00 am - May 28, 2018 PDT

We Rise is a 10-day interactive event featuring artists, musical performances, speakers and workshops promoting wellbeing and mental health. Starting Saturday, May 19, in downtown LA, We Rise is about creating a movement for change in the mental health system…because every person deserves access to care.

WE RISE challenges us to see that creativity, community and collective action has the power to change the culture, climate and systems. People need support to heal and thrive. Individual and collective traumas can tragically manifest as addiction and gang affiliation, anxiety and suicide. It’s time to take action and reimagine what’s possible.

This generation is demanding more from their schools, their doctors, their government each other. At WE RISE, we come together, artists and activists, students and workers, to join to create a healthier and more just society.

Participating artists and activists include: Common, Yara Shahidi, Jesse Williams, Kobe Bryant, YG, Madame Gandhi, Yance Ford, Dolvett Quince, MuMu Fresh, Syncopated Ladies, Raja Kumari, Kehlani, Nick Cannon, Jabbawockeez, Metta World Peace, Cheryl Dunn, Cyrcle, El Mac, Erin Riley, Ernesto Yerena, Estevan Oriol, Favianna Rodriguez, Glenn Kaino, Jessi Jumanji, Jess X Snow, Mel Kadel, Patrick Martinez, Sage Vaughn, Shepard Fairey, Swoon and many more.

Guests should register now for a general admission pass in order to enter the campus and view the gallery. Please check back for a calendar of special events. Parking will be available with details coming soon.
