How to Get Involved

Join the Active Cultures community

Your membership and contributions directly support artists, food folks, and our ability to make their work accessible to broad audiences in Los Angeles.


The Gatherers membership is designed for socially engaged and intellectually curious leaders, who wish to play a greater role in the success of Active Cultures and its growing community.


Support Active Cultures with a fully tax-deductible gift and help make our programs—and our future—possible! Your generosity helps us create opportunities for the most exciting and vital voices in food to experiment alongside the most important artists of our time, while inviting anyone and everyone to share.


Active Cultures is one of the most innovative arts institutions in L.A. and is able to customize partnerships for individuals and institutions alike. Sponsorship benefits range from highly visible on-site presence and the ability to interact with a close community of culturally-engaged patrons, to inclusion in the organization’s print and online materials.


Thank you to all who attended our fifth anniversary Winter Benefit on November 11 to honor our co-founder Glenn Kaino; to our Benefit Creative Directors Minh Phan and Mina Park; and to Priscilla Ahn and Deon Jones for their performances.

Thank you

to our members and supporters

Active Cultures’ programs this year are made possible through the generous support of its Board of Directors; the Gatherers Annual Fund; the Los Angeles Visual Arts (LAVA) Coalition; the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture as part of Creative Recovery LA, an initiative funded by the American Rescue Plan; and by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Arts and Culture.
