Western Arts Alliance's Annual Conference convenes nearly 800 presenters, artists, and agents around the shared goal of programming live performances. The conference features 200 exhibits, 170+ performances, networking, speakers, classes and workshops. WAA's Commons combines exhibit, meeting, and hospitality activities in one compact space. Join our community of dedicated professionals in Los Angeles for four productive days of artistic exploration, insight, and business.

Selection Process
Western Arts Alliance (WAA) uses a peer jury to select artists for the official showcases presented at the annual conference. The jury is composed of four presenters, two agents/managers, and one artist from a broad range of disciplines and aesthetics. Not more than two WAA board members may serve on the jury.
