EST/LA, located at Atwater Village Theatre, acknowledges our presence on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded homelands of the Tongva, Chumash, and Kizh people, who resided here and stewarded this land before the city of Los Angeles was formed, and are still living here among us today.
At EST/LA, we actively welcome diverse perspectives and lived experiences. We pledge to defend our creative space, our members, guest artists and the communities we serve against racism, sexism, ageism, anti-semitism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, misogyny, shame and harmful systems.
