LA Convergence 2018


Each year, Arts for LA hosts a day of cross-sector dialogue and collaboration around issues facing Los Angeles County: the LA Convergence. Designed to challenge assumptions, explore new ideas, and identify potential solutions, the LA Convergence strengthens our ability to chart a path toward a prosperous, engaged, and creative region for all. We are excited to announce this year’s Convergence Keynote Speaker, Vijay Gupta. Gupta is a violinist, speaker and advocate for the power of music to change lives. He believes that musical engagement reconnects us to our shared humanity across vast divides, and ultimately impacts social justice. We cannot wait to hear him speak this year!

Early Bird tickets to the LA Convergence range in price from $75 (additional tickets for Member Organizations or Contributing Members and ACTIVATE alumni) to $125 (regular). Ticket prices will go up in October, so get your tickets now! 

MEMBER ORGANIZATIONS AND CONTRIBUTING MEMBERS

Admission to the 2018 LA Convergence is included in Membership Dues for Arts for LA Member Organizations and Contributing Members. Because organizations of different sizes have different capacity, we have created a tiered attendance structure to help our member organizations identify how many people can attend:

                   Current Member Organization Dues Level        # of FREE Registrations
Individual Memberships $100+ 1
Emerging, $125, $250 1
$500, $750 2
$1000, $2500 3

Contributing Members at the $120 level or higher receive 1 (one) free ticket to the LA Convergence. Additional tickets for Member Organizations and Contributing Members are $75 - a 40% discount.

For more information about the tiered attendance structure and/or about free registration via your organizational membership, contact Karen Louis at info@artsforla.org.
