MISSION

The Arts Activation Fund (AAF) supports neighborhood driven cultural cooperation to produce temporary public programs such as festivals, art walks, vinyl murals, or innovative pop-up events, which use the arts to activate uninviting streets and sidewalks.

Grants of $7500 – $12,000 are available for projects located in the City of Los Angeles that can take place within 2-3 months of the proposal date. Applications are accepted and reviewed monthly from October through June.

GOALS

The four goals of the AAF are to:

  • Foster collaborative planning and production of projects that focus on relevant community themes.
  • Engage, promote, and pay local artists.
  • Enliven our City’s ‘Great Streets’ and other streets which are under-animated.
  • Provide resources to community stakeholders (activists, artists, ensembles, for-profit business owners, and/or non-profit agencies) that do not have other business contracts with DCA.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their eligibility and ideas with Ian Williams at (213) 202-5503. DCA may be able to match you to other funding opportunities.

An application can be found here.
