MISSION

DCA’s mission is to strengthen quality of life in the City of Los Angeles by stimulating and supporting cultural services and ensuring access to such activities for residents and visitors. A key method for DCA to advance the social and economic impact of the arts and ensures access to diverse cultural activities is through the organizational grant program for non-profit arts organizations.

GOALS

The primary goal of DCA’s Organizational Grant Program is to invest in: arts/cultural festivals; festival collaborations between community service organizations and local arts organizations; nonprofit arts organization administrative operation projects; and nonprofit arts organization creative projects resulting in quantifiable sets of business/networking activities, culture/history presentations, dance concerts or classes, design/visual art exhibitions or museum projects, literature or publishing projects, media activities or presentations, music concerts or classes, outdoor festivals or parades, theatrical workshops or productions, traditional/folk arts activities or presentations, and/or multi-disciplinary arts activities. All DCA grant-funded services must support or culminate in activities which are A) free or low-cost, and B) open/accessible for community audiences and city visitors
