Grants Division, Grants Manager and Grants Associate
Los Angeles, CA (2011-2014)
The Arts Commission fosters excellence, diversity, vitality, understanding and accessibility of the arts in Los Angeles County. The Commission provides leadership in cultural services for the County, including information and resources for the community, artists, educators, arts organizations and municipalities.
As Grants Associate and Grants Manager, I managed countywide grant programs of over 4 million dollars and spearheaded special initiatives serving the creative sector of Los Angeles. I helped to support a diverse range of non-profit arts organizations throughout Los Angeles County through organizational support and structural trainings and seminars. The support provided by the Arts Commission allowed organizations to weather difficult financial times, to grow and expand when their audiences demanded it, and fostered a diverse cultural landscape across all of Los Angeles.
