LA STAGE Alliance, Arts:Earth Partnership, and partners have several new services and features that can help you improve and manage your space, venue or facility, and help members of the Los Angeles community who are eager to use your space find you!
Terence McFarland of LA STAGE Alliance will talk about the inception of SpacefinderLA.org in Los Angeles, the growth the service has experienced in the last year, explain the history of the inception of Arts:Earth Partnership and how they are transforming the cultural facilities of our region.
Adam Meltzer and Justin Yoffe of AEP will share details about how your organization can benefit by becoming a part of AEP’s expanding Green Business Certification program exclusively for the cultural sector – with 38 cultural facility members in the greater Los Angeles area already and 18 certified, AEP is leading the way in greening the cultural sector. Expanding missions and funding opportunities through the greening of your spaces will also be discussed.
Lisa Niedermeyer of Fractured Atlas will be visiting from New York to share the exciting new features available on SpaceFinderLA – learn how to maximize your space’s listing with new features like Share My Calendar, allowing SpaceFinder users to search for venues based on availability. (I need a meeting space on Saturday morning!)
SpaceFinderLA will now also include the ability to search for film and visual arts related spaces – as the second largest directory of it’s kind in the country, SpaceFinderLA continues to add spaces on a daily basis, and to increase web traffic and searches by people who are looking for your space!
This event is supported by the LA County Arts Commission and the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.

Ciara Ennis, Director/Curator of Pitzer Art Galleries in Pomona, has organized an oddly cool and thoughtful grouping of artists at 18th Street Complex in Santa Monica entitled 2019: CULTS, COLLECTIVES & COCOONING. The show includes some ecoartspace favorites like Fallen Fruit and Machine Project, Joel Tauber (in ecologic at Cypress 2009), as well as Jason Middlebrook who east coast ecoartspace curator Amy Lipton has worked with the last couple years on various projects.
What I like about this concept most is the imagined and practical applications that inspire a conversation about what kind of future do we want to live in. Do we want to live in fear, or in awe of the universe, and work together to solve very real problems creatively?
This exhibition features objects, installations, photography, drawing and video works by emerging and established artists and explores three related themes: real and fictional intentional communities, the power of the collective versus the individual, and sustainable solutions for future living. Other artists include: Stephanie Smith/WSAC, Bede Murphy/Unarius, and Nattaphol Ma (artist fellow, 18th Street).
