The Ground Floor Project is a unique experimental initiative focusing on cultural activity that is happening now at 8th+Hope. Through partnerships with a handful of select artists, the community, and other cultural stakeholders within downtown and the greater Los Angeles area, the GFP aims to present emerging local culture within music, theater, dance, visual art, craft, and culinary art in a shared resources collaboration. Our ground floor, flexible, convertible space opens out onto the street to welcome the surrounding community in and to inspire resident pride. Above all, the Ground Floor Project aims to create a sustainable platform that celebrates the creative process, the evolution of what is relevant, and the preservation of what is long-lasting for our culture and for our community. Bettina Hubby’s original installation christened the GFP with hundreds in attendance at the inaugural kick off.  Now at 8th+Hope, the Chalk Repertory Theater is performing custom one act plays, Thursday-Saturday nights, for the rest of October. Check out the video below that highlights what’s happening — the video underneath that provides a glimpse of what occurred on the opening night of 8th+Hope+Hubby:
