YBCA and Youth Speaks Living Word Project are proud to present the second edition of Left Coast Leaning. This year’s lineup includes Jogja Hip Hop Foundation (Indonesia), Miwa Matreyek (LA), José Navarrete and Violeta Luna (Bay Area), The 605 Collective (Vancouver, BC) and Adia Tamar Whitaker (Bay Area). Artists chosen to participate in Left Coast Leaning reflect the unique pulse of the West Coast arts scene and the festival format enables audiences and artists to engage in a shared dialogue that crosses performance disciplines. By celebrating the diversity of cultures that lie at the heart of West Coast society, Left Coast Leaning presents an alternative to the negative image of hip hop arts that is projected by contemporary media and challenges artists and audiences to viscerally engage with each other. Our hope is to shift marginalized art forms such as spoken word, media arts, performance installation, puppetry, deejaying and contemporary folklore from the periphery to the center of contemporary performance. This year, Left Coast Leaning also looks across the Pacific horizon to integrate disparate ideas both outside and within the city of San Francisco to establish the Bay Area as a place for artists, scholars, and arts lovers to encounter this dynamic and flourishing New Majority American art form.
