The California Arts Council is holding a Guideline Workshop
for the Creating Places of Vitality grant Program (formerly Creating Public Value)
Deadline is March 1, 2013
The Creating Places of Vitality (CPV) Program is rooted in the California Arts Council’s (CAC) vision to create a state where arts and culture are viewed by residents and policymakers alike as not just important, but indispensable to the individual’s quality of life, to healthy communities, and to state and local economies. The arts offer opportunities to encourage creative innovation and to engage in meaningful cultural activities that can transform neighborhoods and communities to create a distinct sense of place.
CPV supports small arts organizations in rural and underserved communities. Utilizing one of CPV’s partnership goals, the applicant is expected to propose a project that can best be accomplished with a primary partner (and additional partners if needed) to bring vitality and a sense of place to an identified target community. The CPV goals are:
- Foster Attractive and Livable Neighborhoods and Communities.
- Encourage Economic and Community Development.
- Provide Greater Access to the Arts for Individuals, Families and Communities.
- Support Safe, Creative Opportunities for Youth.
- Small arts organizations must be based in and serving rural or underserved communities.
- Arts organizations must have had continuous arts programming for the last two years.
- Non-arts organizations must have an arts component comprising at least 50% of their budget.
