State Cultural Districts: What's Next?

Many of you have responded enthusiastically to our announcement last week on the Governor's signing of the bill empowering the California Arts Council to designate areas as Cultural Districts. We will be undergoing a thorough planning process in order to develop our statewide cultural districts program, with an expected program launch in mid-2016.

We encourage any interested parties to join our Cultural Districts information list to stay up-to-date on the program as it develops, and/or to identify your community as a potential applicant. Sign-up here!   MORE >>
