Live Work Play [HAPPY] event at Art Share LA

On Friday, March 20, 2015, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Los Angeles will play host to the first annual Live Work Play [HAPPY] event at Art Share L.A. in downtown’s thriving Arts District. The celebration marks the launch of Happy City L.A., a new community organization devoted to creating happiness & well-being in the City of Angels. Live Work Play [HAPPY] is free and open to the public!

Happiness—how to measure it and what factors contribute to it—has been a major field of study by social scientists and positive psychologists for decades. As a result, we finally have the language to describe what we need to implement in order to make our city a happier place to live, work and play, for everyone. Says Mayor Garcetti, “This day of celebration marks the start of a new unified effort by Angelenos to make our city one of the happiest places to live in the nation. Happy City LA provides a unique opportunity for collaboration and I am proud to support these efforts.”

In the newly released 2014 Happiness and Well-Being Index Assessment in Los Angeles, it was discovered that 65% of Angelenos have not met their full happiness potential. The goal of Live Work Play [HAPPY] in LA is to turn that around.

To get involved, there are three things Angelenos can do:

1. Spread the Word Amplify our message in the Thunderclap campaign. #HappyCityLA2015

2. Share the Happy Record what happiness in L.A. means to you by filling in the blanks “My name is… Happy City LA is…” within 6 seconds and enter our Vine Video contest.

3. Celebrate at Live Work Play [HAPPY] in L.A. on March 20

Though RSVP is not required, pre-registering for the event for the “Fast Pass” will allow you to bypass the line to enter as a VIP on the day of the event and automatically entering you into the raffle for eligibility to win free prizes.
