ACTIVATE Delegates


ACTIVATE Delegates functions as an advocacy lab for artists, creative sector workers, or anyone interested in the intersection of community organizing and the arts

The four-month program includes:

  • Hands-on learning opportunities
  • Networking with field leaders
  • Meeting with local elected officials and staffers to advocate for the art
  • Mobilizing community members to support key legislation. 

The course will also briefly touch on the fundamentals of cultural policy and civic procedures with the aim of empowering arts leaders to drive change across Arts for LA’s four policy areas: affordable spaces for artists, creative career pathways, equitable arts education, and equitable arts funding.

Applications for the 2022 cohort have closed. If you are interested in applying for future cohorts, please be sure to sign up for our newsletter or email [email protected] to stay up to date!
