Arts for LA is a voice for the arts in Greater Los Angeles that informs, engages, and mobilizes individuals and organizations to advocate for access to the arts across all communities; arts education for every student; robust investment in the arts; and inclusion of diverse and underrepresented voices. Arts for LA invests in leadership development, growing networks of civically engaged advocates; building relationships with elected officials; and working in partnership across sectors to make LA a vibrant, prosperous, creative, and healthy society. Arts for LA has created a spectrum of volunteer opportunities in the areas of special events, communications, and civic engagement.
Volunteers provide critical support at Arts for LA’s special events, such as:
- ArtsDay – a day of civic engagement between the public and elected officials
- Pop-Up Art Show – a special art show featuring local LA artists
- State of the Arts Summit – an all-day conference of arts and culture professionals and cross-sectors activists
Duties may include: welcoming attendees, processing registration, setting up/breaking down, and assisting staff with executing the event. Volunteer shifts are traditionally four-hours on the day of the event, although volunteers are often needed the day before and the day after an event.
