Arts Council for Long Beach

Thank you for your interest in Long Beach arts and culture! Long Beach is a diverse and dynamic city, and its arts reflect that.


The Arts Council for Long Beach is a private 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that promotes, advocates for and helps fund the arts in Long Beach, California. Our mission is to foster creativity and culture, enlivening communities and enabling a thriving economy.


Until 2012, when the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency was eliminated, most of the Arts Council’s funding came from public funds. Now, our funding comes from public funds as well as foundations, private donations, corporate donations and fee for service contracts.


In 2014, the Arts Council shifted its focus away from programming and events and heavily toward advocacy, marketing and funding of Long Beach artists and arts organizations.
