ART, MUSIC & CULTURE (AMC) AND NATIONAL FOUNDATION OF INDEPENDENT ARTISTS (NFIA)
AMC is based out of Long Beach and greater Los Angeles area but its aims are to reach artists and communities locally and worldwide. AMC is intended to serve as an organizational tool for ART, MUSIC & CULTURE (AMC) shows and events. It’s also intended to serve as an information center for art, music or cultural events. AMC shows combine live music and art shows. Art-shows often come in the form of alternative galleries. AMC uses many available venues, be it gallery, studio, open space, bars, nightclubs, warehouses, or empty retail stores. In this sense, AMC is in constant motion bringing spaces to life through collaborative efforts and perhaps transforming such spaces and in the process bringing the cultural arts to diverse audiences.
The National Foundation of Independent Artists (NFIA) is local Non-profit organization created to establish and maintain a network of resources for artists by artists. NFIA provides a platform in which artists come together freely to exchange ideas on technique, subject matter, and sales initiatives.

ARTISTS TOUR & IMAGINATION PROJECT (BI-NATIONAL EXHIBITION) The main objective of IMAGINATION is to bring ideas as cultural and artistic resources closer to the people, by making an artist interaction image-based and context-aware. Our aim is to enable image-based navigation for artistic resources. Our vision is a system where people receive meaningful contextual information about images and image parts, which makes images easier to understand.
