Culver City Launches Virtual Performance Center
Published on April 15, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all industries throughout the world, including the arts. As our community continues to recover and adjust to a new normal, the Culver City Economic Recovery Task Force and Cultural Affairs have collaborated on a Virtual Performance Center (VPC) to promote community arts organizations. The VPC will maintain visibility for local arts organizations while supporting the city’s position as a cultural arts center and vibrant creative economy.
“Cultural Arts are a valuable piece of our economic and emotional recovery during COVID-19”, said Culver City Mayor Alex Fisch. “Despite our current challenges, Culver City remains a center for cultural innovation and is committed to promoting the extraordinary performances presented by our local arts organizations.”
The VPC will showcase performances by Performing Arts Grant Program recipients and is also open to other community arts organizations by application. Arts organizations based in Culver City are invited to submit their virtual performances and apply for a “marketing sponsorship” for inclusion on the City’s website, as well as other promotional assistance including social media posts and email blasts.
Culver City is a five-square-mile, urban community of 39,000 residents surrounded mostly by the City of Los Angeles but also shares a border with unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. It is centrally located on the Westside near Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles International Airport. Culver City is particularly known for its well-run public school system, "small town" charm, growing high-tech and creative economies, and a dynamic downtown that is regionally known as a destination for restaurants, live theater, and art galleries.
