The TAXCO / Canoga Park Stage Arts Lab

THE TAXCO was acquired for the Department of Cultural Affairs with the support and leadership of Councilmember Bob Blumenfield in 2019. The vision is to create access to artists, non-profit and community organizations, and students; with the goal of supporting local artists in bringing their productions to life.

It will be an affordable city-owned and managed incubator for the development of new and innovative productions in music, dance, and theater. By providing a nurturing and creative space for artists, non-profit and community organizations, and students, they will be able to develop new projects and to work out raw materials with their collaborators during the early stages of creative development.

What is planned for the future at TXC/ CPSAL?
Once THE TAXCO has been inspected by the city, and the facility has been evaluated for safety and theatrical readiness, repairs will be made. While there is no timeline for the assessment and work to be done, the city is committed to opening the building for use by artists, non-profit and community organizations, and students as soon as possible.

The Taxco will be a tech-rich space, which will allow LA artists of all ages to work with state of the art equipment, and advance their work to the stage.
