What Goes On In LA, Stays In LA Panel At The PSFK Conference Los Angeles
Design

For the PSFK Conference Los Angeles, we invited a panel of writers and journalists to discuss the cultural trends in LA. The panel, chaired by Adriana Parcero of Nokia discussed how LA has always led green issues; LA as center of fashion with its independent spirit; what defined a center for LA; the possibility of Downtown becoming downtown and LA as a metaphor for the internet. Joining the panel was Tony Pierce of LAist, Emmanuelle Richard of the French daily Liberation, Jeff Miller of Thrillist LA and Shana Nys Dambrot of Flavorpill LA. Here are some of the great comments made during the panel...

ON THE CENTER OF LA

TONY – They keep trying to make malls and walks in LA but they fail. Some people think that the Grove is working and it’s a center for LA. The center of town is where you protest and write. La Brea and Sunset. We’re writing around Vermont & Ten. Protesting is the same way – weird riots at Macarthur park. It speaks to LA on how truly diverse we are and there isn’t a center. That fuels the independence of LA.
