In a County as big, diverse and sprawling as Los Angeles,  how can we ensure that everyone has access to the arts?

And what do data have to do with the arts?

Research reveals that the arts are good for people and for communities. Participation in the arts improves individual health and benefits children socially and emotionally.The arts bring people together across many lines: demographic, economic and social. The arts are an effective tool for community empowerment. People express themselves, their communities and their cultures in arts and cultural spaces. What’s more, in the greater Los Angeles area, the arts are a major part of the local economy, offering substantial career and business opportunities.

The Arts Datathon will bring together local arts agencies with artists, arts administrators, educators, students, community advocates and researchers as well as other professionals in culture, museums and urban planning to 

  • Explore the data that already exist on arts and culture
  • Engage a wide range of people in thinking deeply about how to improve access to the arts
  • Inspire new projects, proposals and policies that would utilize data to improve access to the arts
  • Identify ways to improve arts data collection, organization and coordination
  • Spark community curiosity and conversations about arts access and equity

The Arts Access Datathon is sponsored in part by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
