A crucial component of the strength of LULA Lake Worth Arts is the completion of the 1000 Ave. building. Within any urban community the existence of a cultural presence enhances the community’s ability to resist and reverse blight and deterioration. The rehabilitation of this building will improve the physical environment as well as the quality of life for the community. Programs and exhibitions in the Community Arts Center or “Hub” will allow artist to display their art and will provide an opportunity for the artwork to be sold. The community center will also offer professional networking and recognition opportunities that will eliminate barriers and support the needs of artists. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s arts patrons.
The arts teach us much about every historical period through literature, visual arts, music, dance and drama. LULA Lake Worth Arts will offer a unique program that involves hands on approach to the education of the arts. The building will provide the classroom space where the artists will conduct classes to students of all ages. Another important aspect to the importance of the Community center is a series of workshops that will be offered to the artists in the program. Programs geared towards career development, tax planning, arts marketing and grant writing will be available for the artists. Our partnership with Palm Beach State College will help teach the business skills necessary to increase their levels of professionalism and the ability to promote themselves to eventually be self sufficient.
