Slanguage at Compound


Slanguage is a LA-based socially engaged artist collective by Mario Ybarra Jr., Karla Diaz, & other collaborators. Founded in 2002 in Wilmington–the heart of the port of Los Angeles–Slanguage opened its doors to the community by leading teen workshops, hosting art exhibitions, and showcasing music and performance events. Slanguage hosts a residency called SlangA.I.R. (Artist In Residency) that supports young emerging artists, youth, teaching artists, and collaborations with the community.
