The Center for Celebration Arts is supported in part by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Durfee Foundation.
WHO WE ARE…
The Center for Celebration Arts is an artist driven, community-based arts organization dedicated to engaging diverse communities in the creation of unique
artistic expressions. Through the process of collaboration and co-creation, our mission is to reinvent the ancient art of celebration in ways that speak meaningfully to comtemporary times.
We collaborate with communities, organizations, and cities seeking to celebrate a specific event, commemorate a historical occasion, observe the opening of a new cultural facility, create interaction among neighbors, or come together in other ways of celebrating community.
HOW WE DO IT…
Facilitate the community’s vision through engaging the community in the creative process.
Collaborate with communities and organizations to plan, build, and produce art centered festivals, celebrations and special events.
Design and create Giant Puppets which become the visual symbols of a special Event and cultural ambassadors for organizations.
Provide community residencies, workshops, and art instruction in all disciplines for all members of the community including children and adults, special needs groups and seniors.
Provide Giant Puppet performances to enhance the scale and spectacular impact of public events.
Film and edit new media for edutainment.
