The Northern Virginia Local Arts Agencies (NVLAA) is a collaboration of Alexandria Office of the Arts, Arlington Cultural Affairs Office, and ArtsFairfax to offer arts organizations throughout the Northern Virginia region a series of free professional development workshops and opportunities for networking.

These workshops have passed and we’ll be providing more workshops in the future. Please email Hope Cagle (hcagle@artsfairfax.org) if you have any suggestions for workshop topics.
