Artist Commissions

With the backbone of artist’s livelihoods in economic freefall, rehearsal studios closed, and live performance touring stalled, small-scale and big-hearted investment matters more than ever. For the 2020-21 Season, CAP UCLA has replaced fee-based contracts (where artists are paid after the show), with commissions (artists are paid in advance). At the time of this publication, more than 200 artists are involved with CAP UCLA micro-commissions. With initial support from our Executive Producer Council and national partners, we have generated commissions in order to ignite investment in small-scale new work that directly supports artist recovery. 

For each of these initiatives, CAP UCLA is seeking passionate and visionary philanthropists to join us in creating financial support for artists. Interested? If so, you can underwrite a single commission or sponsor an entire initiative.
