Experience the vibrant creativity and talent of Long Beach at JumpstART, an exciting event brought to you by the Arts Council of Long Beach! Jumpstart Program, our arts enrichment initiative in partnership with Centro CHA, Love Beyond Limits, Playnice, and the United Cambodian Community, has been empowering youth and young adults in re-entry and diversion programs through the transformative power of art.

Throughout several months, our professional teaching artists have mentored and guided participants, introducing them to a range of artistic mediums and methods for self-expression. From photography and painting to music production and ceramics, participants have delved into their creative potential, building essential skills for personal and cultural growth.

Now, as we wrap up the 2024 season, we invite you to celebrate the culmination of their hard work and dedication at JumpstART! Join us on June 15th, 2024, at the Long Beach City College Art Gallery for an unforgettable experience.
