Advance equity throughout Los Angeles with us

Promote equity across Los Angeles' diverse neighborhoods! There are so many talented and gifted artists, culture bearers, and thought leaders in every neighborhood of Los Angeles. Yet, many communities, like Leimert Park, Willowbrook, and historic South Central are often overlooked. At LA Commons, we take seriously our role in supporting all artists, from youth just learning to dip their toes in the field to seasoned creatives working on major public projects. Your gift will allow us to create more opportunities for youth, artists, and community, making our shared city and county even more beautiful and dynamic than ever.

Be a part of the needed change!
