Creative RFP Issued By Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture
Los Angeles County Departments of Arts and Culture (Arts and Culture) and Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services (WDACS) seek a Creative Strategist to work in partnership with WDACS as an Artist-in-Residence.
The Creative Strategist will collaborate with staff from the Community Centers division of WDACS to develop a project that may include artistic interventions, approaches, and strategies; community engagement and participation; the identification of cultural and community assets; the creation of new artworks; and/or access to artistic and cultural experiences to meet the established goal(s) of the residency:
1. Develop culturally relevant and community-informed arts and culture programming that is based on an intergenerational framework and that takes place at County-operated senior and community centers located in the County’s First District.
2. Develop a framework for arts and culture programming that is replicable at other County-operated senior and community centers in other districts.
3. Introduce Community Centers division staff, constituents, and stakeholders to a wide range of performing, visual, and participatory arts programming that is representative of the rich cultural diversity of the region.
In June 2017, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion “to fund the placement of artists, arts administrators, or other creative staff who are representative of diverse constituencies in paid positions as creative strategists.” Working in partnership with County staff and community stakeholders, Creative Strategists use artistic practice and creative techniques to develop innovative solutions to complex social challenges.
