City of Long Beach

Long Beach, California

Challenge:

 

Help the City of Long Beach plan the development of a new arts center to be managed by a newly formed nonprofit arts organization

Goals:

  • Ensure a sustainable, successful project
  • Complete all work on a tight timelines

Scope of Work:

Guide the process for the City and community, including project visioning, community building, review of documents, operating budget, and concept plan. We outlined strategies and examples to solicit artist input and translate it into a compelling report for design revision and funding. We offered project phasing suggestions, including the hiring of an Executive Director and a fundraising consultant to move the project to the next phase.

Update:

An Executive Director was hired, and the group launched a successful community arts program with classes, workshops, exhibitions, and events that will find its permanent home in an adapted historic building in downtown Long Beach.
