The Hollywood Arts Council is a non-profit public benefit corporation dedicated to contributing to the quality of life in the community of Hollywood by promoting, nurturing and supporting the arts.
The Hollywood Arts Council serves the community through advocacy, coalition building, free public arts events and after school programs. Hollywood Arts Council believes that the arts revitalize people as well as communities. It is toward this vision that the Hollywood Arts Council serves Hollywood.
The Hollywood Arts Council was founded in 1978 as a grass roots membership organization open to all who believed that the arts and culture of Hollywood must play a role in the lives of residents and visitors. With 400 community-based members (individuals, businesses and organizations) and many successful projects the Council has an impressive track record of service.
Geographic Area Served
The Hollywood Arts Council serves two constituencies: The Hollywood community (Hollywood, a district of the city of Los Angeles, distinct from ‘Hollywood’ the industry) and the artists and arts organizations who work in Hollywood. The Hollywood area combines a mixture of entertainment industry businesses, multiple family dwellings, home to a rich diversity of cultures as well as an increasing number of children designated at risk.
Through the years, the Hollywood Arts Council has initiated a number of programs and events that either promote or provide the arts to the community. Project SOAR and the Children’s Festival of the Arts are examples of two programs, which provide services to the children of the community. Other projects initiated by the Hollywood Arts Council include a daily calendar of events published by Discover Hollywood Magazine, Annual Charlie Awards, Arts Roundtable, Hollywood Arts Affairs, Pilgrimage Concerts and many more!
We are grateful to our private donors, foundations, the Hollywood business community, the entertainment industry and the City and County of Los Angeles for their support.
