In honor of our one-year anniversary on Hear in the City, we bring you a show about protest, performance, and prayer in the public space. Our show is dedicated to mapping the city through conversations with people working toward creative social change in and around Los Angeles, and in that spirit, we are checking in with Occupy L.A., the Asco show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the World Festival of Sacred Music.
