what we do
WE ARE A COMMUNITY:
for collaboration and community building. We host a monthly art collective, Art Time, a community where artists can share and create new work through different themes each month.
new musical theater, plays, sketch, improv, comics, music, visual art, and other mediums by underrepresented gender identities.
new work produced by the collective and provide a home for women, non-binary, transgender, and gender-non-conforming artists to play and explore with their own projects.
WE ARE COMMITTED:
to adding a distinct voice to the artistic landscape in Los Angeles and beyond through dynamic live performance and other forms of art specifically helmed by women and non-binary, transgender, and gender-non-conforming artists.
Art Time Presents is a project of Fulcrum Arts’ Emerge fiscal sponsorship program.
Are you a nonprofit?
What's a fiscal sponsor?
As we are getting on our feet as an organization, we can use Fulcrum Arts' nonprofit status to accept tax-deductible donations and apply for grants. Fulcrum Arts also handles all of our financial reporting. Eventually, if this model proves successful, we would love to apply for our own 501c3.
Why 'Art Time Presents'?
In 2015, co-founder Hayley McClintock began a monthly Art Collective in Los Angeles known as "Art Time with Hayley McClintock." That same year, Madelyne Heyman and Becker Grumet began writing their first musical that Hayley would go on to stage manage. The three began collaborating both through Art Time and various stage productions, and almost 4 years later, combined both the monthly Art Time Collective events and live performance into "Art Time Presents."
What kind of art do you make?
We produce new works across all art mediums by women, non-binary, and/or trans/gender-nonconforming artists. We also host monthly Collective events open to all that explore a theme, allowing anyone to explore, create, and share in a new medium or familiar medium. Past Collective themes have included screenprinting, cross-stitch, candle-making, watercolor painting, greeting card making, stand-up comedy, storytelling, collaging, and so much more.
Can I still come to an event if I'm a cisgender man?
Yes, with the exception of our writing group and specific events where it will be stated. But please respect for regular events that Art Time Presents is a space that uplifts the voices of women, non-binary, and tgnc folks.
Can an individual artist or organization partner with you?
Yes! We have had extremely successful partnerships with others. Please fill out this submission form for a collaboration and we will respond as quickly as possible.
