Common Field LA Convening

Common Field’s Convening is an itinerant annual gathering that brings together 350+ local and national organizers to explore the state of the field of arts organizing and to share resources, knowledge and methods.

We're proud to announce that this year's LA Convening will be at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center - JACCC, and a constellation of sites across the city. Tickets are available — as well as logistical details, a preliminary schedule, and accessibility and safer space guidelines — at


The full program of session, conversations, workshops, tours, presenters, after-hours events and local arts events will be online ( in mid-September and updated weekly until the Convening. Look out for e-mail and social media updates from us. Sign up for our newsletter here:


This is the first year the Convening will be held on the West Coast. LA has provided especially fertile ground for the rapid expansion of our artist organization community. There is an ever-growing urgency around issues of social justice, equity, and environmental issues for many in our network. It's a critically relevant moment to unite around common and uncommon causes and the future.


Organized by Common Field with lead Los Angeles organizational partners, our national convening team, and our larger network of Los Angeles organizations. LACA is pleased to be an Affiliate Partner and a part of this event happening in Los Angeles.
