Meet your state arts agency staff
We are the staff of the California Arts Council. More than that, we are artists. And activists. And cultural workers. And community organizers who—just like you—understand the power and the capacity of creative work to lift up our state’s diverse communities. It’s our job to invest in you, the individuals and arts organizations that keep California unique, healthy, and vibrant.
