A new pilot grant program, Artists Activating Communities (AAC) supports sustained artistic residencies in community settings, demonstrating the arts to be a central component of civic life, and artists to be vital in shaping society. AAC Projects are artist-driven, engage community members as active participants, and activate participants to develop and express their own creativity.
- A California-based nonprofit arts organization or local arts agency, OR a social service/community nonprofit organization. Organizations such as libraries, housing agencies, senior centers, veterans’ services agencies, or hospitals may be eligible to apply.
- Application must be submitted by a nonprofit organization, but project must be developed in partnership with one or more California-based artists, and the artists’ work must be the focus of the project.
- Applicants to this program are not restricted from applying for and receiving funding from other competitive CAC grants programs as long as those funds are used for different purposes.
