Inner-City Arts is profoundly grateful to have been awarded a $1.2 million grant through the LA Arts Recovery Fund, administered by the California Community Foundation. This two-year funding safeguards our future stability as we continue to recover from the past year of unexpected change. At a time when our students are experiencing such great need, we believe creative exploration offers the most powerful and effective tools to help them heal. This transformational investment will ensure our programs can expand to meet that demand and our mission can reach more young people than ever before. The Fund’s historic support reminds us and encourages all our students, staff, friends, and supporters that Los Angeles remains a community built on generosity, creativity, and inspiration.
