The Llano Del Rio Collective aims to expand cultural, social, and political imagination of Los Angeles through the production of thematic guides, related events and the hosting of a speakers bureau. We aim to frame practices, rather then be a practice. The collective is engaged in prefigurative research.

The project draws its name from the socialist colony founded in California’s Antelope Valley by Job Harriman in the early Twentieth Century.

The project is organized by Robby Herbst. Though not strictly a collective we negotiate collectivist ideals with an advisory group currently constituted by Erin Schneider, Sandra de la Loza, John Burtle, Adam Overton, Hillary Mushkin, Vlad Gallegos, Ashley Hunt, Tom McKenzie, Ken Ehrlich, Kelly Marie Martin,  Janet Sarbanes, Kimberly Varella, Lara Bank, Jen Hofer and Lisa Anne Auerbach. Emeritus members: Steve Anderson, Nicole Antebi, Katie Bachler, Colin Dickey, Fritz Haeg.
