Embrace & Celebrate Culture is a new, citywide Arts & Culture and Human Relations inter-commission initiative to celebrate diversity and create greater culture of inclusion, equity and belonging in the City of Beverly Hills.
Through Community Engagement and the Arts, the two commissions will find relevant ways to showcase global arts and cultural art forms, support local artists, arts and service organizations, and honor community-based individuals and philanthropists who enrich their communities through daily acts of kindness, compassion and tireless service.
