Join us in collecting the voices of Los Angeles

We have a Vision: A vision to document the voice of Los Angeles. And we need your help.

A pre- TEDxLA City Experiment

Imagine that we could hear the voices of people around us. The voices of people who are thinking but not sharing their thoughts. That is what this city experiment is about. We want to create a unique mosaic of what a city reflects, and we are working to capture its spirit from an authentic angle.

Innovation is rooted in ideas that solve problems - but if those ideas have no voice to come to life, millions of ideas will fail to materialize. Imagine if everyone's voice could be heard.

The Reality

The vision is to interview the people of Los Angeles and attempt to document their voices. We will be doing this by collecting audio, gathering videos, and transcribing conversations.

The Vision

The voices of Los Angeles impact our collective future. Our voice is one of the instruments that we have today, as humans, to convey something. How we use it makes all the difference.

A City Experiment

We are not sure how it will end up, and that is exciting. We will experiment with various questions to capture the different voices. Gather data, then try to put it all together.

How it works
