About A+P

Art + Practice (A+P) is a private operating 501(c)3 foundation based in the neighborhood of Leimert Park in South Los Angeles. A+P supports the local needs of transition-age foster youth, and children experiencing displacement worldwide through its collaborations with nonprofit social service providers First Place for Youth and Nest Global. A+P also provides Angelenos with free access to museum-curated contemporary art, organized by the California African American Museum. 

Admission to all art programming is free and open to the public. A+P occupies a nearly 20,000 square foot campus, from which it organizes its art and foster youth-related programs and activities. This campus includes:

A public program space for moderated artist talks, panel discussions, film screenings, lectures, and workshops organized to coincide with exhibitions on view.

An exhibition space curated by the California African American Museum as part of five year collaboration.

A space where First Place for Youth offers housing opportunities and case management services — such as individualized education and employment support — for 18-24-year-old transition-age foster youth.
