State of the Arts Summit

Thank you for joining us for the 2021 State of the Arts Summit!

Resources shared during the event will be shared here. Check back soon!

The past 18 months have made it clear that a return to a pre-pandemic status quo is not an option. This convening brings together cross-sector visionaries experimenting with new models and structures that center equity, sustainability, and prioritize the arts & culture sector's most valuable resource - its people.

Join us for a day of learning, networking, and moving forward together toward a more just recovery.

The State of the Arts Summit, a conference-style digital convening, will provide attendees with the opportunity to network, engage with cross-sector leaders, hear an update from our 2021 Laura Zucker Research Fellow, and review the takeaways from all four Community Strategy Sessions. Purchase tickets for this event today!

Arts for LA's 2021 Community Strategy Sessions have concluded.
Join us on October 14, 2021 for the State of the Arts Summit to learn about our findings from these sessions and more.

Throughout August and September, Arts for LA hosted a series of four (4) Community Strategy Sessions each focusing on a different topic impacting the creative community:

  • affordable spaces,
  • equitable arts education,
  • creative jobs, and
  • arts funding.

These sessions were a chance for you to share your experience, ideas for change, and help shape Arts for LA's 2022 public policy agenda. The four Community Strategy Sessions will culminate at the October 14 State of the Arts Summit.
