Join us for the next LA Arts Funders Meeting on Thursday, May 9, from 10 am – noon at Avenue 50 Studio.

This meeting will feature a conversation with Anne Bown-Crawford, Executive Director of the California Arts Council (CAC). The CAC builds public will and resources for the arts; fosters accessible arts initiatives that reflect contributions from all of California’s diverse populations; serves as a thought leader and champion for the arts; and provides relevant programs and services. Anne will share updates on the CAC’s grant programs, initiatives and proposed state funding increase, as well as her perspective on the health of arts ecosystems across California.

As usual, there will also be time to exchange updates and help requests among participants.
