Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Arts Activation Fund

The DCA ARTS ACTIVATION FUND (AAF) supports creative, community-benefit projects in Los Angeles.

AAF is a bi-monthly fund to support creative-placemaking projects in neighborhoods or near the City of LA’s designated Great Streets. DCA is accepting Arts Activation Fund proposals through Tuesday, May 10. The application will re-open in July 2016.

AAF projects should be temporary objects, installations, or experiences that are free to the community and appropriately sited in public places or within public view. These experiences can be planned, developed, and inaugurated within a 2-3 month production schedule. If proposed objects are to be publically placed beyond three years or proposed events are to reoccur, applicants should make note of this possible longevity in their application.

Applicants may request up to $15,000 of support. Applicants are not required to raise additional funds to match their city investment; however, crowd-funding and supplementary funding is welcome and may be considered a sign of grassroots support. Projects that cost $15,000 or greater should be broken into two phases of construction or implementation.

Approximately 8-16 projects will be supported each year.
