The Quiksilver Edition Mission was a 3-month arts and community center in Venice Beach, California. It ran from June through August in the summer of 2007.
“The Mission” is both a temporary project and a physical space. It is a product of the various passions which drive QuikSilverEdition.
Here in the heart of Venice Beach’s famed Abbot Kinney, artists and designers join the surfers and the suits to swap travel stories, meet their heroes, tune up their ten-speed or just relax with a few cocktails at the bar. Everyone is lounging with the familiarity of a neighborhood block party, some people bring their families, and the music goes late. But these long summer days are also the backdrop for heated talk, big plans and more than a few revelations.
It is our mission to create a place where the unique spirit of the California coast will be nurtured, shared and taught. By combining social gatherings, art events and educational forums we pay tribute to the pillars of our community’s strength. The Mission on Abbot Kinney strives to ensure a sustainable natural environment, a welcome and creative society and the freedom to enjoy life’s easy pleasures.
It is happening. We are in it together. Go with us.
