Last chance to contribute to Arts Council Strategic Plan

As promised, we are offering one final opportunity for you to tell us how the California Arts Council can best serve you and all Californians over the next three to five years. If you weren't able to participate in our in-person Listening Tour events or online survey, or just have more to say, join us on Friday, September 6 or Wednesday, September 11 for a webinar-style online forum.

Assistance for artists affected by the Rim Fire

Help us reach craft artists and arts organizations in Tuolumne, Mariposa, and surrounding counties.

The Craft Emergency Relief Fund is offering emergency relief assistance through grants, loans, and gifts in kind. Please read this important message from CERF+ and share with any professional craft artist seriously affected by the California Rim Fire or other disasters. Our thoughts are with those affected by this devastating wildfire.


More insights from Arts Council Director Craig Watson

It's been a busy summer for the California Arts Council in the news! A new interview with Craig Watson aired last weekend on the Bay Area's CBS KLCC Radio. (This is a different interview than the one shared last week...) Hear Craig discuss the role of the Arts Council in the state, the creative economy, planning for the future, Arts License Plate, CREATE CA, and of course, funding! Click here to listen.
