Get ready, we're preparing to launch Season 3 of the LA Made cultural programming series on February 1, 2018!

LA Made is a cultural series featuring free music, dance, theater, and conversations with local entertainers at libraries throughout the city. The series will run through the end of November and is full of wonderful new program experiences.

We have our exciting Central Library performances in the beautiful Taper Auditorium, where you can enjoy the Latin Jazz stylings of the Louie Cruz Beltran Ensemble, watch The Groundlings perform short-form improv, hear authentic and moving stories by women in It's Just My Life, and view a film about a 13-year-old trans activist from L.A, who will join us for a Q&A. And that's just a sampling of what we have on tap this season at the Central Library! 

Free tickets for Central Library programs are available on Eventbrite six weeks prior to the show date. First in this season's line-up will be Janiva Magness Sings the Blues on February 25 at 2 p.m.

Our LA Made programs being offered at libraries throughtout the city are just as vast, including hula dancing with Hula O Hoaloha, hands-on classes by Master Gardner Emi Carvell, craft programs with Makers Mess, cooking demos with Acooba Scott, origami workshops, Taiko drumming, violin concerts, and much, much more! 

Here's a look back at some highlights from our previous seasons to get you excited for 2018:

We are proud of our home grown, artists, musicians, poets, dancers and actors, and we look forward to sharing these experiences with you. Check out the complete LA Made event listings or pick up an event calendar at your local branch library.
