In partnership with the LA County Parks program “Every Body Plays”, artists will be creating amazing images, sharing chalk supplies and guiding kids, ages 6-12, through various chalk art experiences to raise awareness for mental health, art, connection, community engagement and creative expression.

WE RISE honors the profound contribution of Tongva Elder and WE RISE artist Julia Bogany who passed away March 28, 2021 in Los Angeles. We uplift her voice as an incredible leader who used arts and culture to educate, elevate and build community.

“We, the Indigenous People, the Traditional Caretakers of this landscape are the direct descendants of the First People who formed our lands, our worlds during creation time. We have always been here. Our Ancestors prepared and became the landscapes and worlds for the coming of humans with order, knowledge and gifts embedded in the landscape. Our Ancestors imbued us, who now live here, with the responsibility and obligations of our original instructions as told to us in our creation stories. We are guided by protocol and etiquette to be part of, take care of, and ensure the welfare of the NATURE, the extended family and community defined in its most inclusive expression. We pass those teachings and responsibilities onto our children, grandchildren and many generations to come.”

- Julia Bogany. October, 2020.
