    Art for All

    Art for All is a series of artist-led family workshops, virtual programs, onsite activities, take-home art projects, and a portable programming pod that brings arts education to all nine districts of Long Beach. At Compound our educational partner is Slanguage, a renowned artist collective, that has radicalized arts education for 25 years. We intend to raise non-status quo narratives that have been silenced and buried, speak truth to power, and reactivate public space through equity and access.
