Ford Amphitheatre Seeks Proposals For 2009 Summer Season
Published July 10, 2008

Los Angeles County-based arts organizations who are interested in producing an event at the historic, open-air Ford Amphitheatre in the Hollywood Hills are invited to apply to be part of the 2009 summer season. The Ford is now seeking proposals 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.

 

“We like what’s on stage at the Ford to reflect the cultural make up of L.A. County,” says the Ford’s Managing Director, Adam Davis. “The 2008 season for example includes events with roots in African, Appalachian, Argentinian, Brazilian, Celtic, Chicano, East Indian, Filipino, Japanese, Mexican, Spanish and Thai traditions. We are always looking to enrich this mix.”

 

Similar to a grant program, proposals for the Ford Amphitheatre Summer Season are considered on a competitive basis. Accepted groups become part of the Ford's Summer Partnership Program and receive significant presentation support and assistance for their productions.

 

Proposals are being accepted electronically through the Ford’s web site. Before opening a proposal application, prospective applicants should first read the program's guidelines which include instructions to apply and information on eligibility, the partnership program and other opportunities that exist for presenting at the Ford. Both the guidelines and application are available at www.FordTheatres.org.

 

Workshops about the Summer Partnership Program and how to submit a competitive proposal will be held on Wednesday, July 23 at 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday, August 20 at 7:00 pm at the Ford, 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, 90068, in the Hollywood Hills.

 

Parking for these workshops is free. RSVP with your name, organization, email address and phone number to publicevents@arts.lacounty.gov or call 323-856-5793.

 

The Ford is a renovated historic 1,245-seat amphitheatre located in a Los Angeles County Regional Park and is operated by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Over 100 performing arts and film events are presented at the venue each summer.
