Suarez explained that while the Arts Council for Long Beach Creative Corps application deadlines for non-profit organizations closed, they are reviewing applications and priority issues nonprofits hope to address. Once organizations are selected, the Arts Council for Long Beach will publish chosen nonprofits and their priority topic areas, so artists can thoughtfully tailor applications. The Arts Council for Long Beach Creative Corps application deadline for artists is May 15th.
Suarez said it’s essential for artists interested in applying to reflect on their own lived experiences and how it connects with local nonprofits' ongoing community efforts. She explained artists' understanding of how the issue affects them personally will strengthen their application and be a central factor in helping nonprofits achieve a shared vision.
“I think it's important to reflect on your own work and see how you identify with the priorities first, and then be able to connect to what the nonprofit is doing currently in the community. It's important to come in knowing and reflecting how it impacts that person's life first and then being able to apply it to practice being able to apply it to the vision in collaboration with a nonprofit,” Suarez said.
