First Voice was selected for the California Arts Council’s highly competitive Creative California Communities grant, a one-time fund from the California State Assembly, for the purpose of revitalizing neighborhoods through the arts.
The California Arts Council will support 23 projects in communities across the state through a new program, Creative California Communities. This program will transform communities by harnessing arts and culture as a key economic development strategy.
Projects supported by the Creative California Communities program represent a wide range of arts disciplines, and aim to revitalize neighborhoods through the arts, foster new arts engagement, stimulate tourism, create jobs for artists, invest in young people, and build relationships between local arts, business, and government entities.
