Annual Grants Program
The Annual Grants Program supports the creative life of Pasadena by expanding public access to the arts in our community, by supporting the work of the individual artist, bringing the creative process into the classroom, and funding annual festivals and parades and cultural programming throughout the City.
Public Art Program
ArtNight is an ongoing partnership among many cultural institutions and the Cultural Affairs Division of the City of Pasadena. Enjoy a free evening of art, music and entertainment as Pasadena’s most prominent arts and cultural institutions swing open their doors.
Cultural Nexus Plan
The result of an extensive community process, Cultural Nexus proposes a new element to Pasadena’s Comprehensive General Plan (2004) that will advance arts and culture. The Cultural Nexus Plan articulates community principles and recommends cultural policies that establish a flexible framework for implementation.
The Pasadena Film Office coordinates all on-location production in the city of Pasadena. Our services include coordination of all permits in accordance with our local zoning ordinance; marketing of Pasadena to the film industry; and increasing awareness of Pasadena as an innovative, eventful and fun city in the LA metropolitan area.
