Organization description:
Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE program provides support, resources, and opportunities to a broad spectrum of independent artists, collectives, and small arts organizations. Our goal is to provide artists with the necessary tools to create a sustainable practice while allowing them to remain independent, dynamic, and responsive to the ever changing social and economic contexts in which they live and work. EMERGE engages visual art, dance, music, literary arts, theater, arts education, and community festivals across the greater Los Angeles region. PAC is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that provides resources, programs and services to artists, arts and cultural organizations, audiences, young people and visitors to Pasadena. The agency offers an independent voice for promoting a vibrant cultural community by facilitating, empowering and advocating for the arts.
