A lot of big events going on in DTLA right now. This very second. Then things slow down. Then CicLAvia. Good week.
  • Monday – The Mayor’s Office, Office of Jose Huizar and a host of other Downtown interests host “Pop-Up Broadway” an extension of the already-in-place Broadway Dressed Rehearsal. This event builds upon and activates the recently transformed public space along Broadway with the principles underlying Great Streets. The interventions will take a variety of forms including local merchants, street art, live music, a bicycle zone, artist installations and nighttime projections. Get more details, here.

  • Monday, TuesdayThe Atlantic, The Aspen Institute, and Bloomberg Philanthropies, bring you CityLab, one of our most innovative programs of the year. The program brings together 300+ of the world’s top mayors, urban experts, city planners, writers, technologists, economists, and designers. It started yesterday and is going on right now. More details at the CityLab website.
