Marketing and Development Division
DCA’s Marketing and Development Division works with local, state, national, and international arts organizations to increase engagement and accessibility throughout LA’s communities. The division raised over $35 million in funds from foundations, government agencies, corporations, and private individual donors over the last 14 years to support critical arts and cultural programming. Additionally, DCA partners with the Mayor’s Office, the City Council, community leaders, museum directors, artists, and arts and cultural organizations to raise cultural awareness and promote local economic development.
In addition to marketing citywide festivals and special events year-round, the Division oversees the marketing of the City’s key cultural events and the development and distribution of extensive collateral and digital communications including: exhibition catalogs, educational publications, media materials, and cultural guides and calendars for the City’s Latino; American Indian; African American; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT); and Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month Celebrations. DCA also publishes an annual Festival Guide featuring hundreds of festivals, and oversees the agency’s social media channels and website, culturela.org
