The LAB, in conjunction with La Pocha Nostra and Circuit Network, invites you to experience the Mission District as you've never seen it before. Take the hippest adventure tour in the heart of the hippest city, San Francisco . El Corazon de la Mission is part mobile public art project, part site-specific performance, part tourist attraction and all serious fun. Guillermo Gomez-Pena--the renowned writer, border activist, performance provocateur, reverse anthropologist, and NPR commentator--has scripted and narrated this 80-minute tour to take you deep into the heart of the Mission , the place he has called home for almost 15 years. From Dolores Park to Clarion Alley and the 24th Street Corridor, ride shotgun with Gomez-Pena as he honors the Mission 's ghosts, from fallen labor leaders of the 1930s to testosterone-driven low-riders of the 1980s, and celebrates the ever-evolving social, cultural and political sensibilities of his favorite neighborhood in San Francisco .
