Few things in life are more satisfying than seeing a talented young person begin a career in the arts. But without the right professional connections and hands-on experience, their first and greatest challenge may be just getting a foot in the door. That’s why Creative Long Beach was formed. By empowering future business people, entrepreneurs and thinkers with the tools and resources to become successful leaders, we help them enter successful careers that benefit not just themselves but also the arts community as a whole.
