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 LindsayRirkrit 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. 

Keep public art alive and keep us marching on! Donate Now so we reach our goal of 2,600 ft! Just $5 moves the float 1 whole foot! Trespass!

This project has been created to coincide with the opening of Pacific Standard Time, a collaboration of more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California, who are coming together this fall for the first time to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene.
