Creative Conversations is one of EAL/LA’s signature events. Held in October to coincide with American’s for the Arts’ initiative, Creative Conversations has had different formats throughout the years, but typically it is held over three different days in various places in the Greater Los Angeles area, mostly under served communities.
Creative Conversations are part of a nationwide effort to elevate the profile of the arts through local gatherings of arts leaders in communities across the country. Each year, topics of particular relevancy are chosen and in the past have included diversity and inclusion, entrepreneurship, and civic impact. The organization of these events varies from city to city, but the intent remains consistent: to galvanize local and national support for the arts.
