Join us for the next LA Arts Funders Meeting on Thursday, March 15, from 10 am – noon. Please register online by 5 pm on Tuesday, March 13 if you plan to attend.


This meeting will feature a conversation with Roberta Uno, Director of ArtChangeUS: Arts in a Changing America, a national initiative on changing demographics and the arts based out of the California Institute of the Arts. Roberta will discuss plans for a 2019 ArtChangeUS: REMAP LA. ArtChangeUS REMAP is a series of national gatherings, focused on the cultural assets of demographic change, that have taken place across the country. REMAP brings together an exceptional mix of leading artists, activists, scholars, and cultural change makers to shed light on innovative practice, expand networks, and advance new models of cultural equity.


We’ll also hear an update from Leslie Ito, President & CEO of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, about the recent designation of Little Toyko as one of 14 inaugural California Cultural Districts. And as always, we’ll reserve time to share updates and questions about what everyone’s working on.
