i am a #YOUNGWORKER Exhibit
curated by SolArt for UCLA Labor Center

I am a #YoungWorker is a multimedia research project that combines data, stories, and images by and for young people. It gets to the core of what young workers face today– their struggles, their dreams, and their hopes for the future.


Join us November 18  from 6 pm to 10 pm. for the opening of a photography exhibit showcasing photos of young workers by collective SolArt and the UCLA Labor Center.


The event will launch a new report, the culmination of participatory student-led research over the past year, analyzing over 550 surveys across Los Angeles county. Photographs of young workers across LA county provide a peek into young workers’ lives.


There will be live performances by singer songwriter Diana Gameros and theater by Teada Productions. Food and drinks served.
