Temple Street Slow Jams // A Creative Call to Action for Safer Streets

Join neighbors, artists, community groups, and Temple Street Slow Jams Project Partners Gabba Gallery, Los Angeles Walks, Pilipino Workers Center (PWC) and Public Matters as we transform Temple Street from a high-speed roadway into a spectacular stretch of bold, beautiful art, and public performance. Temple Street Slow Jams is part of the City of Los Angeles’ Vision Zero Initiative to eliminate traffic deaths by 2025.

Looking to get down to slow down? You can get involved at every Slow Jam by joining a participatory performance, wearing yellow or a creative costume, convening at our community conversation tables, or signing up as a volunteer.
