Want to know more about A LOT?
A LOT seeks to broaden audience and artist engagement, linking arts and culture with local neighborhoods. Through music, dance, theatre and other art forms, A LOT presents free arts experiences on vacant lots throughout our city. 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. 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.
