In light of the growing concerns around climate change and on the eve of a big El Niño year, Helms Bakery District partners with VisionLA to bring a calendar of art programming that provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and open conversations. The Festival begins on November 30th with events in and around the city of Los Angeles and Helms Bakery serves as a major hub for many of their happenings.
From Thursday, December 3rd through Wednesday, December 9th, please join us for a film screening or discussion, enjoy an art installation or theatre performance, or come to all of the events around our campus. The Festival umbrella brings together a collective of artists who have much to share about shaping a better future. For a complete Festival calendar, click here.

The VisionLA ’15 Climate Action Arts Festival is the first-ever multi-disciplinary arts festival throughout the greater Los Angeles area organized to give artists a voice in the increasingly urgent conversation around climate change, resource use and environmental social justice. The festival is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort organized by artists for artists, and for the Los Angeles community as a whole. This first year, the festival is timed to coincide with the UN’s COP21 Global Climate Conference in Paris, from November 30 through December 11, to raise awareness of this important milestone in the international call for strong carbon emissions standards.
