TELL YOUR FRIENDS



The Los Angeles Hope Festival is coming to the Bootleg Theater (2220 Beverly Blvd), Friday May 19th thru Sunday May 21st and will feature great food, music, yoga, free talks by world-renowned academics and artists, and more!

This three-day capstone event is the celebration of a five-year effort by the Hope and Optimism: Conceptual and Empirical Investigations initiative to uncover the unique and surprising ways that hope and optimism affects individuals, communities, scientific progress, and artistic expression.

Each night of the festival will feature a performance of the initiative’s Hope on Stage playwriting contest, “I Carry Your Heart” by Georgette Kelly at 7pm (doors open at 6:30).

On Friday May 19th, the festival begins at 3pm, with the day’s keynote speaker, Tali Sharot (author of The Optimism Bias) giving a FREE talk at 4:45pm. After the evening’s performance of “I Carry Your Heart,” at 7 PM (doors open at 6:30) festival goers can enjoy live band performances at the opening night party.
On Saturday May 20th, the talks begin at 11am, with a special food truck curated lunch available from 12:15 to 1:45pm. Saturday’s FREE keynote talk will be given by noted philosopher and activist Cornel West at 5:00pm, and following that night’s play performance at 7pm, guests can once again rock out to live bands at the after party.

The final day of the festival, Sunday May 21st, begins with a staged reading of the playwriting contest third place play, “Yogurt”. Following another delicious food truck lunch, catch a staged reading of the second place play, “The Body”, more fascinating talks, and a 7:30 pm performance of I Carry Your Heart. Dance the night away with another night of live music at the final after party.

Other keynote speakers include the neuroscientists David Eagleman (of PBS's THE BRAIN,) author and MacArthur Genius Yiyun Li (The Vagrants,) and Actress and Creator of The Prison Project Sabra Williams.

And don’t forget about conversations about hope in film, yoga, and more!

Tickets are FREE for all talks, and tickets to I Carry Your Heart performances are $15 for students and seniors via presale or $20 for all at the door. Seating is limited, so it is highly encouraged to reserve your attendance for talks or performances at bootlegtheater.org/theater.
