The Arts Council for Long Beach helps leverage the arts, culture and creativity that shapes the physical, social and economic character of our diverse Long Beach neighborhoods.
We work with elected officials, municipal administrators, developers and school officials to include the arts and local artists in planning for Long Beach’s future.
We provide experiences in arts education to 1,000 students and teachers annually in collaboration with the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) through four core programs: Eye on Design and Passport to the Arts. In addition, our programs Creative Long Beach and Arts Enrichment partner with multiple arts and culture organizations.
Through a long-standing partnership with the City of Long Beach, Arts Council for Long Beach provides financial support to local arts and cultural organizations and individual artists through merit-based grants, contracts and commissions.
