New ArtWorks! Story: Central Sierra Arts Council

Children everywhere need to awaken to the bright magic found in rich, quality arts experiences. But in rural California where poverty affects too many, how can they be reached? Learn how our State-Local Partner, Central Sierra Arts Council, addressed the bullying issue with the help of a California Arts Council Artists in Schools grant. Said one observer: If you stacked up all the pride in this project, it would reach the stratosphere! READ STORY.

Research Grant Opportunity

The California Cultural Data Project (California CDP) was launched in 2008 as an online management tool designed to strengthen California's arts and cultural organizations. Now that the California CDP has been in place, the California CDP Working Group seeks California-based organizations to utilize CDP information to analyze the arts and culture sector of our state.
