Arts Enrichment Partners

Arts Enrichment Partners

Through the generous support of the California Arts Council, Los Angeles County of Arts & Culture, and the California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC), we have partnered with civic leaders, community organizations, and local artists to provide arts education experiences at community centers. For 2023 we will be partnering with Living Arts Long Beach, Love Beyond Limits, and Centro C.H.A to present the CALVIP Artist Workshops.

ArtsLB will engage local artists to present Empower Arts. Lead Artists will be members of our Long Beach Professional Artist Registry and will be drawn from the literary, visual, performing, or media arts. The project will conclude with a free public event, giving participants a platform to share their work and vision with the larger community.
