The arts has been proven to be a powerful tool that can help increase creative thinking, provide a sense of belonging and promote socio-emotional learning. Yet, many children in the country still struggle to access it.

This April 28, "Artbound" sheds the light on how arts education provides for all young people and communities, building the foundation for an inclusive and economically vibrant society. "Artbound: Arts Education" shows that by growing social-emotional intelligence, inspiring a sense of belonging, and developing creative skills, the arts help individuals make sense of the past, act powerfully in the present, and imagine the future.

The film features young poets from local organization Get Lit and professional artists that include Catherine Opie, Vijay Gupta, Hector Tobar, Debbie Allen and Chloe Arnold sharing personal stories. The film, developed in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, will premiere on Wed., April 28 at 9 p.m. PT.

To get an earlier look at this special, sign up for a virtual event hosted by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Tues., April 27 at 7 p.m. PT. The film series includes a panel discussion on arts education today. Film at LACMA presents classic and contemporary narrative and documentary films, artists and their influences emerging auteurs, international showcases, special guest-curated programs and conversations with artists and special guests.
