The City of Sacramento’s Office of Arts and Culture is asking nonprofit organizations, artists collectives and individual artists to join the “Creative Corps Capital Region” program, which covers Sacramento, Yolo, El Dorado, Alpine and Solano counties.
The program will provide grants to artists and organizations to increase public awareness related to water and energy, conservation, climate mitigation, public-health awareness around COVID-19, civic engagement, and social justice.
“We’re excited to kick off this new program and find organizations and creatives to partner with to execute these public awareness campaigns,” said the City’s Arts Program Manager Melissa Cirone. “This project will tap into our creative community to help engage with people on important issues that impact us all.”
The City in August was awarded $4.75 million from the California Arts Council to implement the state’s new California Creative Corps program for the capital region.
The Office of Arts in Culture will be doing extensive outreach to find creatives and nonprofits across the region to help execute the campaigns.
The City will host a free webinar at 4 p.m. Feb. 15 to discuss this new outreach and engagement project campaign. There will also be in-person mixers across the different regions.
Those interested in attending the webinar can register on the City’s website here.
