Inglewood Cultural Arts is a non-profit community lead organization that promotes that arts in Inglewood. Since its founding in 1999, it has been actively initiating and collaborating on many arts focused programs in the City of Inglewood that serve to raise awareness of the arts and enhance the quality of life for the residents.

ICA spearheads a wide range of activities in Inglewood. Some of which include: the Afro-Latin Festival of Music and Dance, Poetry Festivals and the annual Open Studios, which occurs the second weekend in November, showcasing the growing artist community in Inglewood.

The Community Murals program, completed in 2001, introduced disadvantaged youths to the process of making art. Local artists led a series of workshops that created about half a dozen murals. They were installed at various civic locations around the City. Some of the resulting artworks include Culture Fusion, Inglewood Genesis, and On Your Mark.

Inglewood Cultural Arts has always incorporated community planning initiatives into its mission beginning with its role in Inglewood's Cultural Arts Master Plan, providing advocacy for artist issues and staying abreast of current developments in the arts. Recent initiatives include Creative Spark, a youth/professional artist mentorship series and the Interarts Experience, combining creative writing, performance and visual arts for middle school students.
