Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles is happy to announce that applications for Protégé, its one-on-one professional development program, have opened. Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles (EAL/LA) prepares, educates, and inspires the next generation of arts sector leadership. We realize our mission by developing programs, workshops, and networking opportunities for arts leaders across Los Angeles, most for free or at a very low cost. We believe that these investments in the creative sector enrich and sustain the cultural ecology of Los Angeles. 

In addition to these programs, the Protégé program offers members more personalized professional development. This program pairs emerging leaders with more seasoned professionals and offers guidance on a series of meetings that will enrich the careers of both participants. For mentors this is not only an opportunity to contribute to the sustainability of the sector, but to engage in cross-generational dialogue and learning.
