Arts Community Collective

Venice Community Housing has a Community Advocacy Committee, comprised of Board, staff, tenants, students and other community leaders, focused on increasing awareness of issues surrounding homelessness and advocating for local, state and federal policies that sustain vibrant and diverse communities.

In keeping with this mission, VCH’s Community Advocacy Committee developed the Arts Initiative known as Arts Community Collective (Arts C2; ArtsCSquared). Arts C2 works to create public art that moves VCH into a broader role as cultural provider, improving public and common space and continue in the efforts to reduce homelessness.

Arts C2’s purpose is to engage regional and local artists, residents, and community members to implement visual arts within the Venice area and provide a valuable cultural opportunity for our tenants, students, Venice residents and surrounding communities. Arts C2 seeks to bring change to the communal experience between people and place by incorporating arts into the social interactions of the everyday life of Venice residents.
