The Plaza Playlist has been co-created with The Music Center and the community-based arts organizations and community leaders who comprise our Partner Network Initiative (PNI). The partners are each creating a custom music playlist around a theme of their choice; the music will be played as part of the ambient background music outdoors on Jerry Moss Plaza. Their approaches to this curation vary widely, from curating the playlist themselves to crowdsourcing suggestions from their communities.
Partner Network Initiative
The Music Center has worked with community-based arts organizations and other community partners for much of its history. Formalized in 2020, our Partner Network Initiative (PNI) is being co-designed with community partners in the arts, all of whom share the conviction that the arts can heal and transform lives. As part of the PNI, The Music Center is focused on ensuring that BIPOC artists have more opportunities to present their work at The Music Center and in neighborhoods across Los Angeles County.
