Los Angeles Artist Census

L.A. Artists: What do we know about ourselves?

April 10, 2019 | 7:00 PM

Data plays an essential role in understanding the needs of a community. Currently there is little to no data on the financial situations of LA-based artists. Inspired by the US Census, the Los Angeles Artist Census will gather financial, housing, and employment information on local artists to assess needs versus currently available resources. These statistics are crucial in helping to steer policy-making in the favor of artists and will allow artists’ needs to be known to private and public funding entities.

This is an open invitation to the LA art community to discuss and answer the question: “What do we want to know about ourselves as artists and as a community?” This discussion is a call to artists to declare what data they are interested in knowing about their own demographics and is the first step toward creating a census questionnaire for and about LA-based artists. Participants are encouraged to come with ideas, or simply listen and join in if inspired. For those unable to attend but who would like to contribute their ideas to the census questionnaire, please email them to: info@LosAngelesArtistCensus.com and they will be shared at the meeting and referenced during questionnaire drafting.
