Culver CIty Cultural Affairs Foundation Launches Fundraising Campaign

This year the state eliminated all redevelopment agencies in California including the Culver City Redevelopment Agency, which funded free cultural affairs event programs such as:

  • Culver City Music Festival, the annual summer concert series outdoors in front of city hall
  • Made in Culver City, movie screenings that celebrated the classic films that were produced in Culver CIty. Last September, they screened the Spencer Tracy version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
  • Music in the Chambers, classical concert programs performed in the Culver City Council meeting chambers. This March,they presented a free string quartet performance featuring members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, including music by Anton Webern, Ludwig Van Beethoven and others.
  • Other cultural programs, such as Speak Easy, an evening of spoken word and live electronic music featuring performance art icon Rachel Rosenthal, last November.

WIth the elimination of the Redevelopment Agency, such arts programming is in serious danger of being completely eliminated, so the Cultural Affairs Foundation is asking for help to Keep the Arts Alive in Culver City!

Go HERE to donate.

Your donation can be unrestricted or made specifically to support one of the programs lost due to the elimination of the Culver City Redevelopment Agency. A portion of all donations will go to offset administrative costs.
