Meet the 2019 cohort of the LA County Arts Ed Collective Youth Advisory Council! This group of youth leaders are passionate about the arts and arts education, and have a drive for civic action. They come from all over LA County, bringing a range of arts practices, arts education backgrounds, life experiences, and identities. During their tenure, these 23 council members took part in cross-departmental meetings to influence the future of arts education for youth in LA County. They also analyzed data and provided a crucial youth voice and insight for our new Regional Plan for Arts Education.
