  • Affordable Housing Seminar (Los Angeles) - Tuesday, Jan 14, 2020, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    5:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

    The Actors Fund
    5757 Wilshire Blvd., #400
    Los Angeles, CA 90036

    We are excited to present a quarterly Affordable Housing Seminar for performing arts and entertainment professionals in LA. This informative seminar will help participants to better understand what affordable housing is, how it works and aims to support individuals to get organized and prepared to search and apply. Information regarding income eligibility, tenant selection criteria and documentation is discussed to address the specific needs of people in the performing arts, entertainment and creative community. Since many artists have income that is episodic, fluctuating and from several different sources, the seminar explores different methods for calculating and verifying annual household income. The seminar will also provide historical context, an overview of affordable housing programs, information on the LA’s housing plan, and current opportunities.

    The Career Center has teamed with the Fair Housing Justice Center to prevent and eliminate housing discrimination and to promote equal housing opportunities.  We are currently searching for 10 to 15 new Housing Testers to join the cause.

    While blatant acts of housing discrimination occur, more often the discrimination is subtle and difficult to detect. Housing Testers are vital to the investigatory process.  Once trained, Housing Testers will conduct tests to uncover discriminatory practices.  Testing may be done over the phone, through written communications, but more often than not, through personal onsite tests. 

    To be considered for the tester position please feel out the application below. Quality applicants will be contacted to attend this special session to discuss the additional details about the position.

    RSVP: Google Form

    Prerequisite: The Career Center Orientation

    Attendance Rules: All candidates will receive an application status update by January 13.

    12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    The Actors Fund
    729 7th Avenue, 10th floor
    New York, NY 10019

    Orientation is the first step to enrolling in the services of The Career Center. 

    The Career Center addresses a central challenge for performing arts and entertainment professionals: navigating the episodic nature of work in the industry. For many, survival work—initiated to make ends meet—ends up draining the creative professional and becoming more of a problem than a solution. This orientation will help you begin to take the necessary steps to identify meaningful work that complements your life in the entertainment business.

    Orientation for The Career Center (NYC) is held every Monday, except national holidays, at 12 noon and some Monday evenings at 5 pm.

    RSVP: via Eventbrite

    Attendance Rules: Please bring your card with you if you are a member of an entertainment union.
