Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles is a non-profit network devoted to the professional development of the next generation of arts leadership in the Greater Los Angeles area. EAL/LA is run by a group of elected volunteers dedicated to producing free-to-low-cost events for members and the general public, including panels, workshops, and networking mixers.
We welcome anyone who would benefit from our programs, or would like to contribute. Members are typically early in their career or new to the arts field and share a desire to enhance their leadership capacity by developing innovative, effective, and responsible management practices. They represent organizations from all arts disciplines, in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors, and include artists, administrators, managers, directors, funders, and consultants.
EAL/LA is part of a nationwide network of emerging arts professionals initiated by Americans for the Arts.
