Nevada County Arts Councel Gets Grant

Newly Formed Arts Council of Nevada County awarded grant:

The Arts Collaborative of Nevada County (ACNC) was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from the California Arts Council (CAC). The grant is for the creation of a Nevada County-wide arts event calendar and web site in addition to the development of a county cultural survey.

“We are thrilled that CAC decided to give our community this award. This action adds to the strong support we have received from our county’s artists, arts organizations, the Board of Supervisors, and our community. We are so lucky to live and work here,” said ACNC board President Peggy Wright.

ACNC’s calendar and web site committee - composed of artists and arts supporters from eastern and western Nevada County - has been working diligently on the project. The Placer Arts organization, which has an excellent web site and calendar, has been sharing best practices and ideas on the project.

The mission of ACNC is “to facilitate collaborative efforts that promote and sustain the visual, literary and performing arts of Nevada County in order to advance the cultural, social and economic life of our community.”

The CAC funds arts programs with the proceeds from the sale of the California Arts License Plates. The grant falls under the CAC State and Local Partnership Development Program, not from any other California budget areas.
