NAVEL creates opportunities for artists, thinkers and makers to ignite our collective imaginaries, expanding our capacity to cooperate and co-create in holistic, sustainable, and emergent ways. From our collaboratively-run warehouse space in downtown Los Angeles, we support a community of artists and agitators to get the resources they need to do the work they want. Through membership, programs and events, we bring people together to engage and experiment with caring and collaborative ways of thinking, being, organizing, and making. Since 2017, we have provided 150 free or low-cost cultural programs and events to more than 15,000 community members, featuring close to 300 artists, thinkers, and makers.
