Thank you to the Venice Beach Music Festival and a special thanks to Mr. Milton Rosenberg, its Producer. Our artists were made to feel very welcome and were given a day of fantastic opportunities! Congratulations on a very fun and successful event!
Our artists had many opportunities to practice, improve, and grow their social and business skills while experiencing our wonderful community to its fullest. It was incredible to see how each individual artist responded to the many inquiries about their creative process and to watch their skills and self-esteem grow!
