Brooke, Hollywood House

"I couldn't imagine my life/career here in LA without UP(st)ART! It was a great way of making friends and working together to create art. I made many lifelong friends living there and countless memories. AND it launched my career in the film industry!! Very exciting place to live, always something to do and always a place to get away and focus on work."

Jasmine, Echo Park House

"I’m really happy I came to UP(st)ART. I truly believe it helped me a lot. People gave me feedback while I was working on my showreel, and others helped me to build my résumé and my cover letter. One of my roommates took my head shots, which helped me find a talent manager, who signed me, and wants to sponsor me now. I learned a lot in UP(st)ART’s acting class and haven’t miss one week of it. I won friends for life."

Jared, Silver Lake House

UP(st)ART as a group, provides networking events, professional space and a supportive team that really does cater to the individual individial, as well as team. Meeting them, my roommates and entire community was amazing. And the opportunities I had are still paying off.
