Thank you for your interest in the City of West Hollywood's Artist Registry!
The City of West Hollywood through WeHo Arts (the City's Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission and Arts Division) are thrilled to launch this Registry as a way to better understand WeHo’s artist population. We know that ours is a community teeming with talented, creative people (be they visual artists, musicians, writers, etc.) Yet, we don’t have a good sense of the number of residents with active and professional art practices, the disciplines you work in, or how to connect with you. Without this information, it’s hard to define how WeHo Arts can best serve our working artists.
This Registry is a crucial first step in not only arguing that ours is the most creative population in LA County and possibly the country, but also in formalizing communication between WeHo Arts, and the working artists living within our 1.9 square miles. It is our goal to provide opportunities for you and your work to flourish.
Over the next eight months, as we go through a cultural planning process, WeHo Arts: The Plan, there will be opportunities for you to share your experiences and opinions with the WeHo Arts staff about the future of arts and culture in West Hollywood. We will use the Registry to reach out to you directly for your feedback.
Tell us who you are!
Show us your art!
Help us serve WeHo’s artists!
WeHo Arts invites individuals who live in the City of West Hollywood, identify themselves as an artist, and actively practice their craft, both in and out of the city limits, to submit to become part of the City’s first West Hollywood Artist Registry.
The Registry is a formal database of the individuals in the community with active and professional art practices, of all disciplines. This database will be maintained by the City’s Arts Division staff. It will be available to outside parties upon request (Your approval for such disclosure is included at the end of the application).
Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Individuals who complete the application, submit examples of their work, and show evidence of their professional artistic practice, through a resume/cv and/or website, will be included on the Registry. E-mails reconfirming a person’s residency in West Hollywood will be sent periodically to ensure the accuracy of the database.
Should you have any questions, please contact Arts Division Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-848-6400.

ABOUT THE ARTS & CULTURAL AFFAIRS COMMISSION: The City has made a strong commitment to providing accessible arts programming for its residents and visitors. The City formed the Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission to identify the arts needs of the community, analyze methods of fulfilling these needs, and promote activities to broaden the opportunities for citizen participation in the arts. Working in conjunction with other City departments, constituents and local nonprofit arts organizations, the Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission oversees a number of projects and programs to meet the City's mandate to broaden citizen participation in the arts.
