The community is invited to join in the Homeland Cultural Center Groundbreaking Celebration. Hosted by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine, the event will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2009, starting at 11a.m. at MacArthur Park, 1321 East Anaheim Street.
The groundbreaking event will celebrate the construction of a new performing arts center for cultural programming and visual arts display in MacArthur Park. The center will have 60 seats as well as a small gallery space in the lobby of the building.
The Homeland Cultural Center project is dedicated to expanding the opportunity for inner city areas to strengthen the celebration, interpretation and preservation of the enormous diversity of cultural traditions and artistic expressions in the Long Beach area. Cultural artists from all genres, including traditional and contemporary, will be represented at the Homeland Cultural Center from musicians, craftspeople, and painters to writers, poets, dancers and actors.
Funding for the cultural center is being provided through California State Parks, Proposition 12; the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency; and the City of Long Beach.
