Trespass is a celebration of art, music, dance and community activism, which invites all LA area residents to come and march on Oct. 2.
Social awareness is alive in the streets of downtown Los Angeles…as a parade! On Sunday, October 2, 2011, at 11 am the streets of downtown Los Angeles will erupt in a parade of local artists and residents, complete with music, dancing and performance. The parade celebrates the culmination of Trespass, a collaborative project between Arto Lindsay, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and West of Rome Public Art. Help us make the revitalized historic Broadway come alive for this celebration of art, music, dance and community activism.
Trespass has commissioned over 60 Los Angeles-based artists to produce a statement—their call to action, pleasure and reciprocity. The statements printed on T-shirts in English and in Spanish will be worn as part of the parade. With the t-shirts serving as our unofficial uniforms, free speech will resound in the voices of the most influential contemporary artists, the youth of our time, and the diverse L.A. public.
Amazing performance artists, philosophers, musician, sound wizards and dancers, will make this an unforgettable moment for the cultural life in the streets of downtown L.A.
Trespass invites us all to gather in this time of world turmoil and change to rise up and speak out in spectacle.

The parade will commence at the corner of West 22nd Street and South Broadway, near the LA Mart and proceed northeast on broadway to West 1st Street, where it will turn left, continue for three blocks, and turn left again on South Grand Street, coming to an end in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and MOCA Grand.
We are asking everyone who wants to participate to meet at Broadway and West 22nd Street at 11 am on October 2, 2011. The parade will begin shortly thereafter.
We are encouraging people to park near the beginning of the parade, near Broadway and West 22nd Street, where it is considerably easier to park. A limited number of complimentary parking spots will be available at LA Mart; just mention that you're there for the parade! Our volunteers will be on hand to help you find a good spot.
