Arts for LA is honored to announce we received a James Irvine Foundation grant as part of the Fund for Leadership Advancement.  These funds, given over a two-year period, provide training and professional development opportunities to Arts for LA’s executive director, board, and staff.

“We're thrilled to have the support of The James Irvine Foundation toward further leadership development for the staff and Board of Arts for LA,” said Terence McFarland, Arts for LA’s board chair and the CEO of LA STAGE Alliance. “This investment comes at a time when we are well positioned to leverage ongoing successes with our strategic plan in one hand and our policy framework in the other. We've clearly struck a chord as demonstrated by the overwhelming support for our efforts on behalf of the region. This grant affords us the opportunity to continue our catalytic growth in strategic and sustainable ways ensuring a healthy environment in which arts and culture thrive and are accessible to all in Los Angeles county.”
