For the last 30 years The Ford has invited the Los Angeles creative community to be part of their season through the Artists Partnership Program.

The Ford Artists Partnership Program provides independent artists, presenters, producers, or producing collectives the opportunity to co-present with The Ford in a historic 1,180-seat performing arts facility. Throughout its history, the program has supported hundreds of local arts organizations and producers. Originally a program of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission (Department of Arts & Culture), The Ford's summer season provided the opportunity for Los Angeles music, dance, film, and theater groups to produce successfully in a major venue.

Artist Partnership Programming at The Ford


In 2020, The Ford will present an eclectic season of music, dance, theater, and film events that celebrate the region by reflecting the cultural and artistic diversity of the people of Los Angeles on its stage, including numerous Artists Partnership Program presentations.

Application Process

To be eligible, you must be a Los Angeles County-based independent artist, nonprofit organization, presenter, producer, or producing collective interested in presenting at The Ford between June and October. 

Please stay tuned for the new application process and dates for The Ford’s 2021 season.
