GOOD Magazine, August 2015  

You know those conversations that change you permanently? That’s how I felt after talking with Jorge Nuño. I got to write about the work he’s doing in South Central L.A. Read about him on GOOD.

Nuño has always wanted The Big House to be a space where kids come in and feel like, “‘Wow. This is where my ideas can be incubated and pushed forward.’” He wants them to be inspired not just by the great classes, but by the space itself, so that when they walk in they think: “‘I want to create a short film,’ or ‘I want to be able to help my parents with their street vending ice cream business,’ or ‘I want to create content so that we can tell our community’s story.’”
