Commitment to accessibility
The Community Engagement department is committed to developing free and low-cost public programs that represent, welcome, and connect the many communities across Southern California. We collaborate with local creators to offer collective experiences for all to enjoy, from dance classes to outdoor concerts and cultural festivals.
Our programs are designed by and for people of all backgrounds, and we strive to amplify perspectives that have been historically underrepresented, including Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQ+, and/or disabled populations.
Since its opening in 2017, we have welcomed over 100,000 visitors to the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza at more than 400 free and low-cost events. Voted “Best New Community Gathering Space” by Orange Coast Magazine, Argyros Plaza is home to many of our public programs, including wellness workshops, movie nights, dance classes, family events, cultural festivals, and an annual summer concert series.
Ring in the holiday season with us this year at the next Silent Night Silent Disco! Whether you love the holiday classics or Top 40, The Silent DJs will have you rockin’ around the dance floor all night long!
