Arts for LA is thrilled to invite you and your colleagues to participate in the inaugural State of the Arts Summit. Uniting arts leaders from across the region, this half-day convening gives you a chance to explore and champion solutions to some of the field's most pressing issues. Themed Pathways and Places, we will focus on finding solutions to address: equitable access to education, space, jobs, and funding. Your voice and advocacy is vital as we strive to build equity within our creative economy. Award-winning LA Times columnist Steve Lopez and California State Senator Ben Allen will headline our welcome address. Together, we'll dive into the issues with the goal of developing a proactive, collective agenda to support the arts in Los Angeles.
