Performing Arts Grants


Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program

The Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program offers grants to non-profit performing arts organizations in Los Angeles County for music, dance and theatre. Under the purview of the City Council and the Cultural Affairs Commission, the Performing Arts Grant Program is designed to support arts organizations and to bring distinguished cultural programming to Culver City.  The amount of grant funding available is dependent upon the total deposits made into the City’s Cultural Trust Fund each fiscal year. Additionally, the Performing Arts Grant Program is supported by contributions from Sony Pictures Entertainment and Culver City Arts Foundation.
