The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood greatly appreciates the support of the Hollywood Police Department for awarding our organization a $10,000 grant from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund for our Arts Access programming initiatives. This grant will help the Center provide leadership and career development activities for youth enrolled in our year-round Arts Aspire program, as well as reduced-tuition scholarships to Hollywood youth from low-income households who wish to participate in our 2021 Summer Arts Camp.
At a time of great financial hardship in our community due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, Arts Access program activities will provide youth of all backgrounds in Hollywood with structured and fully interactive arts-learning experiences outside their K-12 school setting. The Center is fortunate that the City's Police Department, under the leadership of Chief of Police Chris O'Brien, recognize the vital importance of high-quality arts education activities for youth and families in our community.
