After Super Storm Sandy, the mood of Long Beach and its neighboring towns on our barrier island has been shifting from one of “survival to revival.” Sandy destroyed our boardwalk, lowered our beaches, and damaged many homes and businesses. However, the storm did not defeat us: our boardwalk will be rebuilt, our beaches will be replenished, and our properties restored. Our community is dedicated to making those goals a reality.

What has sustained us throughout – are THE ARTS. Whether it’s children painting to express their feelings, musicians writing songs and performing at fundraisers, artists creating works to support the community, or filmmakers documenting our experiences- these are what make us “strong beach”.

Artists in Partnership, Inc., a not-for-profit arts organization, in partnership with the Long Beach Public Library, has provided venues and opportunities to talented literary, visual, and musical performers which have benefited our Long Beach Community for over 13 years.

AIP NOW NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT to ensure that they not only survive, but are a part of reviving the arts even further!  As a community we need AIP - especially at this time - because they offer us means for self-expression, cultural experiences, healing, and opportunities for increased economic growth.

BECOME A MEMBER, MAKE A DONATION, or SPONSOR AN EVENT. Your support of Artists in Partnership, Inc. shows your commitment to the arts and ensures that Long Beach will always be a place where they can grow and flourish. We’ve survived – now we are ready to revive!
