Local Arts Agency Network
Local Arts Agencies (LAA'S) are non-profit or government agencies in suburban and unincorporated areas of King County that provide arts and cultural programs and services for a municipality or geographically defined community. 4Culture facilitates a regional network and bi-monthly meetings of more than 25 LAA's including both well-established and developing agencies. These meetings provide an opportunity for participating agencies to share resources, knowledge, expertise, and innovative avenues for collaboration. The meetings are open to the public and take place in various communities throughout King County. The public is welcome to attend.
Any new or existing cultural commission or agency in King County is welcome to join. For more information, or to submit a letter of interest to join the LAA Network, contact Charlie Rathbun at 206 263.1607
