Downtown Los Angeles has come alive with a new pop-up art festival that focuses on activism and community building. The We Rise festival features over 150 artists in an eye-opening exhibition. We Rise also includes workshops and activities aimed at improving our communities’ overall understanding of mental health. The We Rise festival strives to send the message that together healing is possible. Art can be a powerful tool to aid in this healing process. We Rise has brought together a number of artists with individual works that explore these themes of positive change within the community.

We Rise is free and open to the public until June 10th.
