ABOUT LEIMERT PARK VILLAGE STUDIOS
Leimert Park Village (LPV) Studios is designed as the catalytic economic development, social-enterprise and skill development venture to help drive the renaissance of Leimert Park Village, the area considered to be the cultural hub of the African American community in Los Angeles. The LPV Studios concept is a strategy being undertaken by the Leimert Park Village Stakeholders 20|20 Vision Initiative launched in January 2014. The objective of the LPV Studios concept is to sustain an umbrella creative infrastructure that builds on the strengths of the Village’s cultural assets, ensures that future economic development is guided by the area’s rich artistic heritage, harvest a network of local creative industry human capital and provides employable culturally centered skill development for the next generation of artist, technicians and entrepreneurs; all of which will set the stage for a thriving creative economy enclave that can compete with modern day production locations.
LPV Studios exist within the framework of the Village’s anchor cultural venues that will be upgraded to enhance their revenue generating capacity to house performance, production and recording stages and to accommodate the installation of additional facility features including green screens, film screening rooms and editing bays as well as a shared commercial grade internet bandwidth required to distribute cinematic creations. New acquisitions of available buildings within the Village will also be facilitated in order to transform non-conforming uses and vacant spaces into additional multipurpose production, event and supportive retail and incubator spaces.
The mission driven purpose for developing the LPV Studios framework and infrastructure is to not only to foster a viable social enterprise, but to serve as a hub for creative industry skill development and provide an organic STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) centered educational environmental that exudes creative energy and entrepreneurial thought leadership. For instance, the STEAM curriculum will feature an intergenerational historic cultural archiving social enterprise project lead by historians, community elders and experienced artist who will work with youth to document the oral history, roaster of renowned artist and architectural elements of LPV. The cultural archiving project will produce a bi-annual online magazine, themes and materials for movie productions, plays, cultural tours and gallery exhibits, CD’s of LPV artist performances and historic articles.
The concept also includes the transformation of the public infrastructure in the Village to provide “back lot” scenes, premiering space and locations for large events such as what can occur in the City of Los Angeles commissioned People Street that recently granted the permanent closure of 43rd Place from Degnan to Leimert Boulevard. In an exciting move forward, anchor venue collaborators have already begun to the LPV audience by strategically co-branding and co-marketing a year-long schedule of festivals, cultural events, programs and services through a shared master calendar hosted on the www.LeimertParkVillage.org web portal, through the www.Livestream.com/LeimertParkTV internet channel with live stream capability, on the www.LeimertVision.com free WiFi system that host a soon to be launched LPV radio station and the Leimert Park Village Face Book page that is integrated into a shared contact database on the web portal.

What is the future of Leimert Park, the hub of African-American arts and culture?
Nic Cha Kim takes a look at the 1.2 square-mile stretch of Leimert Park, also known as "the black Greenwich Village."
Kim travels to various parts of the village for "SoCal Connected" to ask business owners, residents, and stakeholders about the future of Leimert Park and whether gentrification will impact the neighborhood's culture.
With the scheduled 2019 opening of a Metro stop in the area, how will business owners and residents react to the neighborhood's transformation?
Some say the city's historic art presence is something that can help tackle new changes and preserve the city's roots. Upscale art galleries like Papillion have captivated the attention of Leimert Park residents. But will this change the face of the village or work to raise the art scene and attract new visitors?
