Arts Tune Up, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, is a FREE 4 hour workshop offering expert advice, consultation and information to individual artists, current and future arts practitioners, arts advocates, and arts organizations looking to gain insight on a variety of topics.
Social Practice presented by Chelo Montoya
