Creativity is Californian
We’re the world’s fifth leading economy and home to more artists than anywhere else in the nation. We understand the value of culture and innovation.
At the California Arts Council, it’s our mission to strengthen arts, culture, and creative expression as the tools to cultivate a better California for all. We support local arts infrastructure and activities statewide through grants, programs, and services.
