About the Event
Join us in celebrating our new location at the Bristol Swap Mall Plaza!
LibroMobile Arts Cooperative (LMAC) intends to empower artists of color and culturally enrich residents in Orange County, California. Through social engagement, diverse arts, equitable practices, and direct action, LMAC aspires to counter the impact of gentrification on the local community by providing culturally relevant arts education and reinvesting profits in the local residents, arts industry, and business economy.
Established in 2016 in Santa Ana, LMAC is a community-based collaboration between a mobile bookstore and cultural center practices. It builds on anti-gentrification movement culture and cultivates diversity through literature and the arts by prioritizing Black, Indigenous, people of color and integrating free reading and writing programs, visual exhibits, and year-round creative workshops in Santa Ana, California and its surrounding areas.
