The Hollywood Arts Collective—Supporting a Life in the Arts

Located in the heart of Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard between Wilcox and Schrader and now under construction, The Hollywood Arts Collective is a new affordable housing development and community arts center that embodies the Entertainment Community Fund vision: a world in which individuals contributing to our cultural vibrancy are supported, valued and economically secure.

The Cicely Tyson Residential Building features 151 units of affordable housing and the new home for the Entertainment Community Fund Western Region Headquarters. The Rita Moreno Arts Building will be home to The Glorya Kaufman Performing Arts Theater; LA Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE); a young filmmakers program targeting underserved, emerging talent in the neighborhood; and the Entertainment Community Fund’s Rosenthal Family Foundation Training Center.

The project, currently under construction and expected to open in 2025, is an important stake in the ground for lower-income arts and entertainment workers and small non-profit performing arts organizations being priced out of Hollywood. It will allow them to continue to live, work and perform in the center of creativity in Los Angeles. We are grateful to our development partners, Thomas Safran & Associates and Kingdom Development.
