Side 1 of Utopias of So.Cal.. It’s free, find it around town, or email us your mailing address (LA County Res).

As the present moment appears  fixed in the destructive-ideology of hyper-capitalism this guide locates places in Southern California where other ideologies have reigned. Utopias of So.Cal. is a free (to LA County residents) two-sided printed map/guide to current and historic utopian communes, colonies, and intentional communities in Southern California. Sited in the guide are collectives founded on ecology, socialism, spirituality, free expression, queer liberation, and feminism. 23 current and historic lebenskunst sites (a San Diego group committed to facilitating interplanetary dialogue, a LA based community founded on Chicana/o art and consciousness, a Santa Barbara colony credited with inventing the hot tub and the Renaissance fair). In coordination with the release of this guide, Llano Del RIo is presenting a series of public events (May 28, June 25, July 23rd) in a tree house located by the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Pick a guide up at the sites listed below or email your address to Llano Del Rio and we’ll post one to you.

Utopias of So.Cal. contains reflections on the persistence of these colonies in our own utopian consciousness’  written by contemporary artists, filmmakers, and writers; Sandra De La Loza, David Frantz, Janet Sarbanes, Mady Schutzman, Jodie Willie and the Women’s Center For Creative Work (WCCW). This guide, like all Llano Del Rio guides, is free and available to residents of LA county through the mail (send llanodelrio@gmail.com your postal address) or around town (listed below). Non-residents of LA may purchase a copy of the guide online with our friends at Half Letter Press or through & Pens Press.
