Body
I. SUMMARY

The California State University, Dominguez Hills Arts Department operates a community service known as the PRAXIS art engagement program. The program was launched as a partnership in the City of Carson during the fall of 2018 at Del Amo Park, providing afterschool art and mentoring. In 2019, California State University Dominguez Hills Foundation (CSUDHF) was awarded a grant from the California Arts Council Funding Creative California Communities to expand the Praxis program. On January 14, 2020, City Council entered into a license agreement to allow CSUDHF to offer the free PRAXIS program at Carson Park, Del Amo Park and Dolphin Park for two-hour sessions, twice a week during the Fall and Spring semesters through June 30, 2021. Due to the COVID pandemic, the in-person art classes were ceased in March 2020 and resumed virtually in January 2021. CSUDHF has received an extension of the grant to continue providing free art classes until May 31, 2022. Currently, the PRAXIS art program is not operating during the summer months.
Staff recommends that the City Council approve an amendment to extend the term of the license agreement to May 31, 2022, to correspond to the grant extension. The amendment would allow for the PRAXIS Arts program to continue to operate virtually, with an option to resume in-person classes subject to compliance with applicable COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, at Carson Park, Del Amo Park, and Dolphin Park.
