California Arts Council meeting
When: June 25, 2019 9 a.m. to 4 or 5 p.m.
Where: Calaveras High School Performing Arts Center Theater
The public is invited to attend.
The Calaveras County Arts Council is deeply honored to be invited to host a meeting of the California Arts Council (CAC), a California state organization whose mission is to advance California through the arts and creativity. The CAC, through grants and initiatives, helps support arts programs that benefit communities like Calaveras County.
This will be an all-day working meeting for the CAC board and staff; one of the agenda items scheduled will be a vote on allocations for two grant programs—State-Local Partners and Statewide and Regional Networks—for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend. According to Kathy Mazzaferro, executive director of the Calaveras County Arts Council, “It’s a great opportunity for our citizens to find out more without having to travel to Sacramento. I’m a firm believer that the more transparency in government, the better. If you want a better understanding of the inner workings of the California Arts Council, this is your chance.”
The members of the California Arts Council meet throughout the state approximately five times each year. All meetings are open to the public and are held in various locations around California to encourage broad and diverse attendance. The meetings are governed by the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act of 2004. Agendas are posted on the California Arts Council website no later than ten days prior to the meeting date, and minutes are posted once approved by the Council (minutes for each meeting are normally approved at the next meeting).
“We welcome the opportunity to share the challenges of the arts in rural California,” Mazzaferro said. “We have unique challenges with our rural economy, such as the lack of industry and jobs, limited public transportation. At the same time, we are so blessed with the talent of our artists and performers in Calaveras County.”
“To know that the state arts council is not only willing, but that they want to take the time to visit different areas so that the entire state can better understand what they do is inspiring.”
The meeting will be held at the Calaveras Performing Arts Center (CPAC) at Calaveras High School in San Andreas on Tuesday, June 25, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
