Arts Impact Stories Campaign

We want to hear your ARTS IMPACT STORY! Help us make our case to the state adding your voice and sharing your stories. In a state as diverse and culturally rich as California, the arts serve to give voice to our many communities, spark individual creativity, foster empathy and understanding, spur civic engagement and serve as a continual source of personal enrichment, inspiration and growth.

How has access to public funding helped an arts program, artist or organization make a difference in your community? How can the arts create a meaningful outcome on some of our state’s most pressing issues?

In conjunction with Arts, Culture & Creativity Month, your submission will help us bring public awareness of the importance of the arts; to ensure that the arts are an ongoing part of the public dialogue; and to encourage Californians to care about the arts as a critical component of their own lives and the lives of their communities.

Send in your narrative, a link to an article or blog post, a work of art or a video illustrating your arts impact and help us build our case. We will share these on social media and in our public awareness campaign throughout the month of April. We look forward to showcasing stand out examples as we take to Sacramento, our state’s capital, on April 23rd for Arts, Culture and Creativity Advocacy Day.
