On June 6, 2010, Outpost will host the Outpost Cup to launch its new South American initiative and to bring the community together for a day full of soccer, art, music, food and fun.

Taking place one week prior to the World Cup, the Outpost Cup soccer tournament will encourage local artists, art fans, families, college students and soccer players to bring their creative and athletic talents to the field.

The event will take place at Vista Hermosa Natural Park in Downtown Los Angeles from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.  The address is 100 N. Toluca Street (at First Street).

About Outpost Outpost has been connecting people to art and artists through a wide variety of events, exchange programs and residencies since 2004. Programs engage and enrich Los Angeles communities through cross-cultural exchanges and interdisciplinary projects that blur the boundaries between art, social practice, and public life.

Outpost’s storefront home is located at 1268 N. Ave 50 (at York Blvd.) in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. Outpost is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

South American Artist Residency Cycle Devoted to building bridges between our local community and the larger global landscape, Outpost’s next residency cycle will bring six South American artists and artist teams to Los Angeles over a period of two years to produce City-based projects fuelled by the artists’ extended presence in our community. Should be super fun and a great opportunity to support Outpost's South American Artist Residency program!
