The Music Center has announced the launch of Arts Grown L.A., a collaborative effort that creates a platform for the artistic expression thriving in communities throughout Los Angeles County. Deepening and expanding the reach of free arts events and performances available to the public, Arts Grown L.A., a TMC Arts program, builds on The Music Center’s highly successful partnerships with community groups and local artists to create free, family-friendly performances and artmaking experiences for all ages.
The program will expand the reach of The Music Center’s multidisciplinary artist roster into neighborhoods, create connections with local artists and arts organizations to produce large-scale neighborhood performances and establish dance residencies for young people at community partner sites. From performances and concerts at parks, community centers, libraries, senior centers and civic events, to Hip Hop dance parties and youth lessons, Arts Grown L.A. will uplift artists and creativity in communities throughout Los Angeles and complements existing local programs to enrich and enliven neighborhoods through the arts.
“L.A. County has a rich arts culture with artists whose work defines and differentiates the many pockets and neighborhoods throughout the region. It’s these artists that bring our communities together, build bridges and open lines of communication through their work and remind us of what we share in common and how we can respect each other’s differences,” Josephine Ramirez, executive vice president of TMC Arts for The Music Center, said. “Arts Grown L.A. was designed to embrace local artists and partner with the talent we find in the backyards of L.A. County to create arts experiences we can share with our children, friends and neighbors.”
“We are excited to partner with The Music Center and Univer-SOUL Hip Hop to bring their transformative, soul-centered dance education to the youth in Little Tokyo Service Center’s Mi CASA afterschool program and to the Little Tokyo community,” Nancy Alcaraz, director of resident services at Little Tokyo, said.
