A Lot: Activating Community Spaces

Oct. 22, 2013 / By

A LOT is a community-wide initiative presented by the Arts Council for Long Beach in collaboration with partners throughout the City of Long Beach, California. A LOT seeks to broaden audience and artist engagement, linking arts and culture with local neighborhoods. Through music, dance, theatre and numerous other art forms, A LOT presents free arts experiences on vacant lots in traditionally underserved areas of the city through the end of August 2014. Our hope is that Long Beach will become just a bit smaller and more intimate, drawing residents together to celebrate the City’s rich culture. Mark your calendars, grab your friends and family, and get ready for a good time!

The A LOT experience in Long Beach will add to the national conversation about creative placemaking. As the City’s arts agency whose mission is to foster creativity and culture, enlivening communities and enabling a thriving economy, the Arts Council is honored to be leading this initiative. Founded in 1976 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization and governed by a local board of directors, the Arts Council believes the vibrant art scene makes Long Beach a premiere destination for residents, businesses, students and visitors.

Ends October 27
