Over the last 10 years, our mission has been to ENRICH, EQUIP and ENCOURAGE communities through the arts . We do this through three different branches within our organization:
a.) Quality performance based productions,
b.) Relevant arts educational programming
c.) Life changing ministry.
CBG Arts vision is to expose 3000 youth and young adults to the arts consistently by 2020. We want to Inspire and challenge the appreciation and work ethic of the arts while instilling a calling where all those who work with us can grow into the leaders they have been called to be.
We exist because art is one of the greatest measures of a society's influence and legacy. We stand behind these core values found within our mission statement:
Quality: We are committed to providing quality programs and related services to the community, audiences and artists we serve.
Urban: We provide a voice and are sensitive to the needs and capabilities of the urban youth & young adult. We believe everyone is ready to inspire or be inspired, that all of us have something to teach or learn and a giant that just needs to be awakened.
Life Changing: Authentic experiences, bonds and spaces fuel us. We want to be intentional with everything that we do.
Relevant: We believe our work and programming should reflect society while serving as its conscience.
Fall 2018, CBG Arts has adopted St Marys Academy High School in Inglewood, La Salle Elementary School in South LA and partnering with Inglewood Theater Group to offer FREE workshops for their students providing audition tips and introduction of acting, singing and dance classes. In the Spring we will transition the classes into full production rehearsals as we mount up spring musicals.
* At LaSalle we service the entire 2nd-5th grade Student Body every Thursday in the school auditorium.
* At St Mary's a select group of 40 -45 students meet Mondays and Wednesdays after school no the Performing Arts floor.
Our Saturday program offers an extensive selection of educational, recreational, and cultural programs that will keep young kids learning, engaged and having fun.
