  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Understanding Skid Row

Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) students in the Creative Action: Integrated Learning course “Understanding Skid Row” engage and research urban poverty, homelessness, and justice. They collaborate with the L.A. Poverty Dept. (LAPD), a theater company of people who make art, live, and work on Skid Row. Together with LAPD members, students walk the neighborhood to hear directly from residents about conditions essential for culture and community.
