The California Arts Council has been a member of the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) since 2017. The Innovations Grant funds government partnerships with local artists / cultural practitioners* of color or of the global majority* to eliminate structural racism*. The Innovations in Government grant is a pilot for the CAC to address structural racism through arts creation.
The purpose of the California Arts Council’s Innovations in Government pilot is to work with artists / cultural practitioners of color or of the global majority, through an Application Organization, to co-create a series of public online interactive workshops that explore racial equity through artmaking and cultural practice. The Application Organization plays a crucial role in this process, they will support the artists / cultural practitioners in collaborating with the CAC and take on the financial responsibility for the program. This workshop series will conclude in a publicly available workbook that other government agencies or arts organizations can use as part of their systems change work. The interactive workshops and the workbook will be developed in collaboration with CAC staff. We anticipate the program will begin in July 2022 and will be completed by December 2022.
