The Ford is seeking applications for a broad range of categories including, but not limited to, alt-rock, ballet, cabaret, circus, classical music, film, hip hop, jazz, multimedia, modern dance, theatre, world and folk music, and world dance. Similar to a grant program, applications for the Ford Theatres Summer Season are considered on a competitive basis.
At 1,200 seats, the Ford Amphitheatre creates an intimate concert experience that is a favorite among Angelenos. Each summer, the Ford hosts a diverse roster of events representing music and dance styles reflective of the communities that comprise Los Angeles County. Operated by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Ford summer season events are in partnership with Los Angeles County-based arts organizations and producers. Unlike a traditional presenting model, these organizations apply to be part of the season and receive significant marketing, box office and house management support while keeping the majority of box office proceeds. This historic venue was built in 1920 and is located in a beautiful County park in the Hollywood Hills, just off the 101 Hollywood Freeway across from the Hollywood Bowl and south of Universal Studios.
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission fosters excellence, diversity, vitality, understanding and accessibility of the arts in Los Angeles County. The Commission provides leadership in cultural services for the County, encompassing 88 municipalities, including funding and job opportunities, professional development, and general resources for the community, artists, educators, arts organizations and municipalities.
