California Creative Corps Development Panel Nominations

Self-nomination form is now open for the California Creative Corps development panel!

The California Arts Council seeks nominations from artists, culture bearers, government employees, and individuals with community-based organizations statewide to participate in our new pilot program development panels.

About the California Creative Corps

The 2021 State Budget includes a one-time $60 million general fund investment for the CAC to implement the California Creative Corps, a media, outreach, and engagement pilot program designed to support communities statewide with concerns following the COVID-19 pandemic, including other social, civic, and environmental issues.

How it works

A total of 24 panelists will be selected — three individuals from each of the eight regions outlined in the Otis Creative Economy Report 2021 — to collaborate with community stakeholders within their local communities to establish the California Creative Corps program guidelines.

Support

Panelists will receive a $100 honorarium for each meeting they attend.
