Adoption of the Countywide Cultural Policy

Hilda L. Solis and Sheila Kuehl

Data collected about the arts and culture workforce in LA County show there is much more work to be done. The work that arts institutions, funded by LA County, have already done toward achieving greater diversity constitutes a strong base to build upon, but there is a growing recognition that it is necessary to move beyond simple measures of diversity to address deeper issues of cultural equity, inclusion, and access to the arts. As a County, we have an unprecedented opportunity to maximize assets and diversify resources to make gains in cultural equity and expand access to the arts for all residents.
