The Los Angeles Public Library’s L.A. Made series celebrates and highlights the diverse cultural landscape of Los Angeles by bringing humanities presentations, talks, and performances to libraries across the city. L.A. Made events are offered at no cost to people of all ages, and the events promote civil discourse, creativity, cultural appreciation, storytelling, and social and community connectedness.

Past events have included concerts by the Golden Bridge Choir and synth-legend Suzanne Ciani, and performances by Viver Brasil Afro-Brazilian dancers, the Lula Washington Dance Theater, and Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles. L.A. Made has hosted talks with RuPaul, trans activist Janet Mock, a film screening with the late Jonathan Gold, and workshops by Get Lit youth slam poets.

L.A. Made is supported through the generosity of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
