Overview

Art and culture are key drivers for transformation of Willowbrook into a even more desirable place to live, work, create, and play. We have a diverse and thriving community with resources that remain untapped and disconnected that can help to create dynamic public art and engaging spaces in one of the LA County’s unincorporated and most notorious neighborhood.

WIN is committed to providing unique arts and culturally-based social and economic opportunities for current and future residents as well as visitors and stakeholders. These initiatives are meant to make the quality of life in all forms easily accessible and engrained into everyday life in Willowbrook.

The Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station, where the Blue and Green Lines meet, is more than 25 years old. It is also the fourth busiest station in Los Angeles County, carrying more than 30,000 riders a day.

Cultural Venues & Retail – The Catalyst for Economic Change

The creative economy is a powerful and positive global force. Together, artists, cultural nonprofits, and creative businesses produce and distribute cultural goods and services that impact the economy by generating jobs, revenue, and quality of life.
• build the intellectual assets of the cultural community
• inform cultural decision-making and program development
• enhance public understanding of how the arts contribute to the vitality of communities

Cultural and creative businesses are the fourth largest business sector in Los Angeles County, generating $115 billion in revenues annually. These businesses—ranging from for-profit creative enterprises to nonprofit arts service organizations—stimulate the regional economy by providing jobs, fueling tax revenue, and enhancing the overall quality of life for Los Angeles County’s ten million residents.
