Plaza de la Raza
Plaza de la Raza Cultural Center for the Arts & Education is the only multidisciplinary community arts venue dedicated to serving the Eastside neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Since 1970, Plaza de la Raza (Place of the People) has been a cultural oasis for the Eastside neighborhoods of Los Angeles, providing year-round programs in arts education and a space for cultural enrichment. Founded by prominent labor, business and civic leaders as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, it offers affordable after-school, intergenerational arts education programs to nearly 5,100 children, teens and adults each year. Its mission is to foster enrichment of all cultures bridging the geographic, social, artistic, and cultural boundaries of Los Angeles, and beyond. Throughout the year, Plaza presents more than 450+ classes (beginning to advanced) that are taught quarterly by local artists and performers in theater, dance, music, and the visual arts. In addition, the center attracts more than 25,000 visitors each year with its free cultural programs and manages almost 300 community volunteers. As a filming location site, Plaza has it all: beautifully landscaped grounds, multi-colored buildings, a gorgeous lakeside view, a decorative fountain, full kitchen, two colorful outdoor courtyards, a dance hall, a 40-space private parking lot, and a 200-seat auditorium dedicated to the memory of actress Margo (Mrs. Eddie) Albert, all located in the shadow of DTLA in Lincoln Heights.
