Grants of up to $25,000 to California nonprofit organizations and local arts agencies for arts and media projects that build public support and awareness of the arts. Projects should engage the public with local experiences and stories that focus on culture, arts, and creative expression.
The Arts and Public Media program supports projects by nonprofit media organizations that build public awareness and support for the arts. This grant program is rooted in the CAC’s belief that the arts are a central component of daily life. It aims to contribute to a vision where the arts are accessible to all, reflect contributions from all of California’s diverse populations, and foster civic engagement.
The purpose of this grant program is to support the production and programming of engaging multiplatform media projects. Supported projects engage Californians with authentic local stories and experiences centered on the value of arts, culture, and creative expression within California. Multiplatform media projects refer to content that is delivered in the context of a wide range of distribution possibilities and not just a single delivery platform.
Examples of project types include but are not limited to presentation, distribution, exhibition, and preservation activities such as:
