  • CULTURAL ARTS PROGRAMS

Arts and culture are essential components in building and sustaining a vibrant, thriving community. Creative and innovative ideas, the core attributes of arts and culture, are central to our community’s development. Arts and culture fosters developmental, intellectual and emotional benefits unique to each individual. When arts and culture is widely available, our citizens have sharper insights, greater empathy and heightened community involvement. This is what we strive to accomplish, with Cultural Art Programs in the City of San Fernando, strategically allowing our community to take full advantage of the benefits provided by creative individuals and organizations in the arts and culture sector.

The Cultural Arts Division offers a variety of programs, for more information, see descriptions below and click on the program title for details.
