Welcome to the Arts in the California Governor’s Race project
The Arts in the California Governor’s Race project is a non-partisan effort created to ensure that issues related to the arts and the creative economy are suc- cessfully inserted into the California governor’s race.
Organized by a consortium of non-profit arts organ- izations, arts support groups, artists, and concerned individual supporters of the arts, the consortium parti- cipants believe strongly in the need for meaningful public support for the arts and arts education.
The Arts in the California Governor’s Race project is building a statewide army of citizen activists who will help send the message to the gubernatorial candidates that the arts are important to California’s future, and urge the candidates to support arts-friendly public policies that:
- Increase public funding for nonprofit arts organ- izations in order to better serve their communities
- Ensure that every child has the opportunity for a comprehensive, high quality arts education in grades K-12
- Nurture an environment to allow individuals and families affordable access to all forms of the arts
