The Cultural Pathways-Technical Assistance program is rooted in the California Arts Council’s (CAC’s) commitment to serving the needs of an increasingly demographically complex California, and the belief that a healthy arts ecosystem reflects contributions from all of California’s diverse populations.
The purpose of the Cultural Pathways-Technical Assistance program is to strengthen the capacity of 2022 Cultural Pathways grantee organizations that are rooted in historically and systemically under-resourced communities and to anchor the cultural and creative work of these organizations into the cultural landscape of the state.
Deadline: January 26, 2023
The California Arts Council’s policies and practices prioritize racial equity and have a broad geographic reach into communities of all sizes and needs. These priorities include strengthening the creative expression of artists, artistic practice, and community collaboration as vital strategies in healing, stabilizing, uplifting, and transforming communities. Artistic projects that foster creative social change in equity and access provide crucial opportunities for sustaining strong, healthy, vibrant, safe, and resilient communities in a region.
Applicant organizations can request up to $150,000 for the two-year grant period.
