From Ricky’s Desk: April

Apr 1, 2024

Hi Arts Advocates,

Arts Month is here! Established in 2012, Arts for LA hosted the first Arts Day as a way to foster dialogue among civic leaders and since then, this one-day event has grown to Arts Month, a month-long spotlight in April to celebrate and advance access to arts and culture throughout Los Angeles.

Our Arts Month calendar serves as a day-to-day guide for artists, arts workers, and advocates, highlighting programs and events from our organizational members, opportunities to mobilize towards collective action, and reflections on our significant progress.

We encourage you to review the calendar and sign up to attend the various informative and exciting events that await throughout the month. Every Monday, we will highlight the week’s recommended items. This week, review our advocacy efforts (including those related to LA28), the many opportunities to share in community dialogue, and other programs that reflect the diversity of our sector such as the Association of California Symphony Orchestras (ACSO) webinar on identifying microaggressions in orchestra settings and New Filmmaker LA’s monthly film festival, including InFocus: Disabilities.
