Established in 1993, Venice Arts’ mission is to ignite, expand, and transform the lives of Los Angeles’ low-income youth through photography and film education, and to use our participatory storytelling practices to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities around the world.
This mission grew out of our founding dream: to create a vibrant, neighborhood arts center committed to education and community-building through the arts. Twenty-three years later, we are proud to have been recognized, nationally and locally, as one of the preeminent, community-based arts organizations in Los Angeles. Our three core programs—Art Mentoring & Education, Gallery & Public Programs, and Participatory Documentary Programs—offer high-impact education to low-income youths, while fostering a space for artists, community members, and families to interact through a regular series of exhibitions, film screenings, and public programs.
