Emerging Artist Series

The Valley Cultural Center, VCC, along with The Handshake Foundation (THF) and Department of Cultural Affairs, is seeking to create a series of concerts featuring emerging young artists from the greater Los Angeles area. The Valley Cultural Center’s Community Outreach mission is to enrich the community through quality arts activities and programs for youth, seniors, and families in the San Fernando Valley. Cuts in school arts programs have left youth with little opportunity to experience the joys of creativity and imagination through music, dance, and visual arts.

Emerging Artist
This joint partnership will ensure young talent will have the opportunity to thrive. Artists will be cultivated and vetted through THF’s mentoring program and The Valley Cultural Center before reaching the live performance portion of the program. THF has identified over twenty professionals in the music industry ready to step up and help. Qualifying performers consists of bands, musicians and/or vocal performances. If you would like to support this effort, please visit our pledge page to make a directed contribution.
