Student presenting to audience of adults

The LA County Arts Ed Collective has a longstanding commitment to promoting systemic change in local school districts. The Arts Ed Collective works alongside partners and coordinates efforts across the region to advance arts education for LA County students.

School District Support

The Los Angeles County Arts Education Collective supports school districts to increase the quality, quantity and equity of arts instruction in their schools.

All LA County residents are invited to a series of community forums to envision how together we can create and support thriving children, healthy families, and stronger communities through the arts.

In order to prepare LA County public school students to contribute to the creative economy, quality arts education is imperative.

Juvenile Justice

A cross-agency team is embedding the arts into LA County’s juvenile justice reform. As part of the new LA Model, the plan emphasizes education and support services that will lead to rehabilitation.

Creative Wellbeing

Creative Wellbeing is an approach for fostering communities of wellness that was developed collaboratively by the LA County Department of Arts and Culture, Office of Child Protection, Department of Mental Health, and Arts for Healing and Justice Network.
