What is a Museum Community Partner?

The Museum has partnered with a limited number of community organizations that are actively engaged with our Community Engagement Department.  We foster relationships with our Community Partners through ongoing communication, resource sharing, and community conversations, which is in direct support of the Museum's strategic framework to expand our role as museums, of, for, and with L.A.  Our overall goal is to work collaboratively with Community Partners to find ways to build a better community-- together.

Below are samples of programs and digital resources developed collaboratively with Museum Community Partners.  To learn more about our work in Community Engagement, visit the Being Los Angeles webpage.  If you are interested in the Museum connecting to your organization, view our Community Request Form.
