Vendor Application - @WeAreDTLA
ARTISTS, ARTISANS, & CRAFTSPEOPLE! APPLY NOW to be considered for one of the events produced by Edgar Varela and Melissa Richardson Banks of @WeAreDTLA.

For the MOST impact and possible inclusion in our marketing, BE SURE TO APPLY NOW. We are working with LA LIVE on a major marketing campaign. In addition to our own extensive networks through Downtown Muse, EVFA and WeAreDTLA, LA LIVE will be promoting our events on their Facebook/Twitter/Instagram sites; through LALIVE.com (10k daily visitors); LA LIVE e-newsletter (sent to 65k subscribers); and eblasts sent to other lists (e.g., AEG 10k subscribers; Regal Cinemas 35k subscribers, STAPLES Center 750k subscribers). LA LIVE is also doing print and digital advertising with Downtown News, LA Weekly, LA Magazine, LA Canvas, and more plus sending targeted emails to local DTLA residential buildings and other subscribed sources.

We've curated over 20 events for LA LIVE since August 2014, including POPUP Marketplace and Downtown Dark Nights, which each drew over 15k-25k attendees within five or six hours.

WHO CAN APPLY: We want local art and artisan vendors who personally MAKE and/or DESIGN their own handcrafted, handmade goods that are independently distributed and sold. For some events, we also have room to accept up to 8 mobile retail trucks (sorry, no food trucks). Our preference is that all goods are made in Downtown Los Angeles or the greater Los Angeles area.

NOT ELIGIBLE TO APPLY: Anyone who sells edible items, manufactured goods, or items made from a source other than the vendor. At this time, we are also not accepting vendors who sell vintage or contemporary furniture, vintage fashion unless repurposed, contemporary clothing sold in any major retail stores. For anyone else, we will accept your application and notify you for an event that does allow these exceptions.

Applications for our very limited vendor spaces are reviewed, selected for consideration on a first-come, first-serve basis, and then juried into acceptance for this event as well as future ones.

For each vendor, L.A. LIVE will provide FREE access to power, FREE parking for one vehicle, placement of a designated 10x10 space to sell in an area that is lit as best as possible, one 8' table, up to two chairs, and coverage via a garden umbrella or a canopy, depending on their assigned location. The cost is only $100 payable to L.A. LIVE on the night of the event via cashier's check or cash.
