2024 Evening Webinar Series for Arts Workers

A Community Learning and Networking Program for Arts Professionals

Program Description

The DCA Evening Webinar Series for Arts Workers, in partnership with Arts for LA, is an opportunity for the local arts and cultural community to build networks through listening, learning, and exchanging insights. This year, the program comprises six cohorts.

These evening exchanges offer opportunities for attendees to ask questions, share comments or recommendations, and interact at the end of the sessions. If interested, local artists and arts workers are welcome and encouraged to join multiple cohorts throughout the course of the series.

These meetings (starting at or after 6:00 p.m. PST) are virtual and held on regular intervals (monthly or biweekly) to encourage consistent enrollment, continuous participation, and evolving benefits. lease note that all the cohort meetings will be recorded.
