In 2015, the LA County Arts Commission analyzed data from 2014 reports written and submitted by grantees of the Organizational Grant Program, to identify trends in the field and to improve the program. We found that grantees, after several years of reduced revenues, were beginning to stabilize, increasing their programming, restructuring boards of directors, and experimenting with programming outside their normal venues. This report also lays out a series of steps the Arts Commission had begun to improve our technical assistance and professional development offerings.
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission fosters excellence, diversity, vitality, understanding and accessibility of the arts in Los Angeles County. The Arts Commission provides leadership in cultural services for the County, encompassing 88 municipalities, including funding and job opportunities, professional development and general resources.
