Mission Statement

Our purpose is to organize, encourage and enhance the cultural environment in the City of Long Beach. By supporting the artists in our community, together we create cultural opportunities and experiences for the people who live, work and play here.

Description

The arts are more critical than ever for our children hoping to compete in the 21st century. Music and arts education are powerful tools that build a young person's overall success in school and beyond.

After years of budget cuts, many music and arts education programs in Long Beach are on the brink of extinction or severe reduction. The Arts Council for Long Beach's grants funding, which supports 25 local arts and youth-serving organizations each year, has been cut 31% and faces more cuts this year. Long Beach Unified School District also faces reduced funding in several areas, putting severe pressure on arts and music programs.

Funds raised through We Love LB Arts go partially to the Long Beach Education Foundation to support music and arts in our schools, and partially to the Arts Council for Long Beach and its grant program to support community arts programs big and small across Long Beach.
