The City of Sacramento is kicking off Arts, Culture and Creativity month with performances from local creatives at McClatchy Park tomorrow, April 7 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Arts, Culture, and Creativity Month is a month-long, statewide effort organized by Californians for the Arts. Each week of the month will spotlight different themes including: Raising visibility and awareness about the value arts bring; empowering arts advocates, and spurring greater investments in the creative economy and creative workforce. The over-arching theme for 2022’s ACCM is “The Arts Work.”
Mayor Darrell Steinberg will be presenting a proclamation from the Mayor and Council recognizing April as Arts, Culture and Creativity Month in Sacramento.
The program includes performances by Olympic hopeful break-dancer BBoy Morris, Sacramento Poet Laureate Andru Defeye, Teatro Nagual and Sacramento Taiko Dan.
“We must celebrate our local artists as they strive for success on the international stage, but we also cannot forget that the arts put people to work,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg, “We have invested $30 million dollars of pandemic relief funds in Sacramento’s arts, culture and tourism because we know how crucial the creative economy is to our whole economy.”
