“One Day in LA” Meetup tonight at Venice Arts

This looks like a pretty cool project:

WHAT:

 ONE DAY IN L.A.

Your Day. Your City. Your Future. is the first-ever 24-hour film collaboration that will bring together thousands of people in L.A. and across 10 other American cities on the same day (April 26) to document the issues and culture that will define their communities for the next 20 years. Hundreds of local participants in L.A. will be coming together before the big filming day at a Meet Up in Venice tomorrow to share their stories and ideas for what they will capture about city life in L.A.

There are so many compelling, unique stories that will be told by the people of L.A.— here’s a snapshot of what you can expect to see: grassroots recycling efforts by ex-convicts, the implications of the charter school influx (L.A. has more charter schools than any other school district in the nation), the labor movement and minimum wage demands by local hotel workers, immigrant children in danger of being deported, and the re-greening of the L.A. River.

Here’s a link to the L.A. teaser and trailer:

VISUALS:

Hundreds of local participants in L.A. will be coming together before the big filming day at a Meet Up in Venice—it will feature a Ted Talk by project founder and director, Kyle Ruddick, drinks, food trucks, and an interactive map of L.A. where participants will plot the issues and areas they’ll be documenting on April 26. Kyle will also be available for interviews at the event.
