Located in the heart of the Zaferia District in Long Beach, California, Compound’s approach is holistic and inclusive, offering art exhibitions and immersive experiences, performances, education programs, classes and workshops in the healing arts, community markets, dining, and spaces to wander and reflect—all designed to promote connection, belonging, curiosity, and growth. Zaferia is a historically under-resourced neighborhood, and the 15,000-square-foot complex is designed to be a place where programs are offered at low or no cost, and art, healing, food, and culture intertwine to provide uplifting experiences for all who visit.

Compound opened to the public in early 2020 and is an active participant in, and a valuable resource to, the local area. Located inside Compound, Union restaurant builds on the ethos of fostering a vibrant and inclusive community through the art of cuisine and is dedicated to reducing food disparity throughout the neighborhood.

In this role, the Wellness Programs and Special Projects Coordinator will be a key member of our team, responsible for shaping our program’s foundation, working in collaboration with others in setting deadlines, and determining project resource allocation, while making adjustments over the course of the project’s duration with the support of Compound Leadership.
The strategy of Compound is to draw visitors to the center by a) creating a popular venue for the exhibition of experiential contemporary art, b) presenting permanent exhibitions, c) offering exceptionally engaging public programs and events and d) expanding the guest experience using the most current technology.
