We are looking for individuals or organizations who will expand the current arts uses at the Airport and provide robust services to individual artists throughout the community. The management will oversee artist selection processes, programming, coordination, and strengthening the Airport artist tenant network in collaboration with the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs. This is a terrific opportunity for arts professionals who are dedicated to supporting individual artists and interested in growing the arts campus at the Airport.

“Pursuing Green Office Certification”

To assist in the efforts of creating a sustainable city, Cultural Affairs not only recognizes the importance of incorporating the City’s sustainable design in its projects, but also values its role in creating a healthy work environment for staff that supports the City’s sustainability policies and models sustainable best practices for the office place.

Cultural Affairs is continuously working towards implementing sustainable practices that will provide staff with a greener and healthier workplace. We have implemented simple practices such as purchasing supplies that will have less impact on the environment, using less-toxic cleaning products, reducing waste, practicing water efficiency, and promoting green commuting by ride-sharing, walking and providing staff with a Bike@Work bicycle.

 Cultural Affairs' Green Office Certification is modeled after the Santa Monica Green Business Certification Program, a free program that provides sustainability consultation services to businesses that operate in Santa Monica.
