How Do You Want To Be Remembered?
Last November, while celebrating the stories of Black, Brown and Indigenous communities at We ARe Here: A Celebration of Legacy in Grand Park, we asked folks, "How do you want to be remembered?"

About Black Image Center
Black Image Center is a collective based nonprofit 501c3 founded by a group of young Black Photographers in Los Angeles. We aim to cultivate imagination through photography and economically empower Black storytellers and image makers.
About For Freedoms
For Freedoms is an artist collective that centers art and creativity as a catalyst for transformative connection and collective liberation. By wielding the power of art, we aim to deepen and expand our capacity to interrogate what is and imagine what could be. Founded in 2016 by a coalition of artists, academics, and organizers, including Hank Willis Thomas, Eric Gottesman, Michelle Woo, and Wyatt Gallery, For Freedoms promotes infinite expansion through art, and is dedicated to awakening a culture of listening, healing, and justice.
Since 2017, Kinfolk (formerly Movers and Shakers NYC) has been holding public teach-ins and demonstrations, developed performance pieces and created augmented reality (AR) experiences that advocate for the decolonization of history. Its mission is to uproot oppressive systems and reimagine public spaces through art, emerging technology and storytelling. The vision is to inspire an equitable future. It's 2022, and Kinfolk is still frustrated by the lack of representation in public spaces and textbooks. Its approach is to:
- Educate the next generation
- Use augmented reality to write Black and Brown narratives into American curricula
- Use immersive technology to challenge the inequitable distribution of monuments
- Empower communities to collaborate
When we speak of our vision to deepen the cultural lives of all Angelenos, we turn to the work of TMC Arts. This team champions the diverse voices and communities of Los Angeles, fostering connection, creativity and enrichment. TMC Arts programs connect people, offering us the chance to get creative and to learn as we discover something new or enjoy something familiar. Many programs are free and low-cost; they take place outdoors on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center and in Grand Park, inside The Music Center's theatres and in schools and neighborhoods all across L.A. County.
