Know Your Server - Open Call for Artists of Any Medium working in Public Service Job

Know Your Server
Produced by Paris Gulbro Patt
Presented by Heard(LA)

Know Your Server attempts to show the audience member that throughout
Los Angeles, one is surrounded by aspiring artists, musicians, and most
importantly, dreamers in disguise. With high rent and living conditions

different Artists along with a photograph of them in their work
