Real93543 is a creative place-keeping project for the Southeast Antelope Valley, designed to engage residents and artists in a collaborative, arts-based process of strengthening local ownership and social connection. An homage to the 93543 zip code, the project highlights community-specific narratives through documentary media, art education programs and public art.
Founded by Artistic Director Robin Rosenthal for the Los Angeles County Arts Commission's Antelope Valley Art Outpost initiative, programming has included a monthly series of documentary film screenings and public discussions; a filmmaking club; a community-sourced video gathering event; and the first Real93543 Film Festival featuring community-made documentary shorts. Positively Littlerock, a photo-based public art installation and Story Map Tour, activated sites along the Pearblossom Highway. During the COVID-19 shutdown, residents safely engaged in the 100 Hubcaps project. Most recently, in response to the Bobcat Fire, a virtual creative writing workshop was held .
Real93543 is a project of Fulcrum Arts' Emerge fiscal sponsorship program.
