This meeting will focus on the role of local arts agencies in developing local arts programming and local community and economic development efforts. Speakers from arts agencies within Los Angeles County will discuss their work, how they work with both each other and local elected officials and how counties can replicate their success. The discussion will include an overview of American for the Arts' Local Arts Agency Census, which paints a portrait of the programs, budgets and operations of the local arts agency field across the United States.
