LAVA – The Los Angeles Visionaries Association

”[LAVA is] a network of creative types and thinkers working to grow Los Angeles up.” – The New York Post. “LAVA gathers creative people in search of a different experience of life in Los Angeles.” – Flavorpill. “LAVA always flows with red-hot nuggets of LA life.” – The Rundown. “This organization is like an ongoing Masters program in Los Angeles cultural history.” – Marguerite Darlington

Gentle reader,

Welcome to the LAVA dispatch, an invitation to get out into the open air and explore. The real Los Angeles reveals itself slowly, and rewards the ernest seeker.

A warm “thank you” goes out to everyone who VOTED FOR US in the small business grant competition. We reached the tipping point of 250 votes this week, and will now wait patiently until the fall to see if all your good will translates into a grant.

Now read on for the LAVA news you can use.
