Episode 37: 826LA, break bread with Think Tank Gallery
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES-
826LA is the non-profit writing and tutoring program nestled among many storefronts on Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park. While the unassuming front known as “The Time Travel Mart” is full of fun and silly gifts, some even made by the students, the brains of the operation definitely are grinding away in the back. In the case of 826LA, thousands of children from ages 6-18 visit each year in after-school tutoring, workshops, and field trips. The volunteer driven program makes an undeniable difference in children’s lives.

Think Tank Gallery is not pure event space, or pure art gallery. It is an immersive experience that gives you a bit of both worlds. Their current show BreakBread from artists Scott Hove and Baker’s Son is slated for 30 different events during the days of its run. Including a special performance from Cirque Du Soleil coming soon.
