The Community Foundation Serving the Counties of Riverside and San Bernardino (TCF) received funding from The James Irvine Foundation for the Arts Regranting Program/ Inland Empire (ARPIE) which will provide risk capital to small and micro arts organizations in the two-county region to experiment with arts engagement activities. The Arts Program goal is to promote engagement in the arts for all Californians: Arts engagement that embraces and advances the diverse way that we experience the arts and that strengthens our ability to thrive together in a dynamic and complex social environment. The regranting funds are for small arts organizations in the Inland Empire (note that Mountain Regions and High Desert areas can also apply) to experiment with new approaches to arts engagement. Grants are intended as risk-capital for very small arts organizations, agencies, art collectives and groups to pilot projects that focus on

1) reaching low-income and/or ethnically diverse populations that have been traditionally underserved by nonprofit arts organizations,

2) offering active engagement in the arts in which participants are making or practicing art, and/or

3) using nontraditional arts venues such as churches, store fronts and shopping malls, or open lots and other spaces not typically designated for arts use that are easily accessible and familiar to the public.

The City of Fontana Community Services Department would like to invite you to participate at the Jazz 'n Art event.  The Jazz 'n Art event is a place to help promote and inspire the community's interest in visual and theatrical arts and for artists to network, sell and showcase their talents.  This year the Jazz 'n Art event will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 3:00pm - 6:00pm at the Lewis Library and Technology Center at 8437 Sierra Ave., Fontana, CA.

Craftswoman House Accepting Proposals

January 24, 2014
Published in Other

Craftswoman House is dedicated to fostering a dialogue on feminist issues through projects and exhibitions. CWH is inspired by collective projects such as Womanhouse, and pays homage to the rich legacy of feminist art in Southern California.

Hinterculture and Craftswoman House are pleased to invite proposals for a project marking the centennial of the Llano Del Rio colony on Saturday, May 3, 2014. We seek proposals from all disciplines and encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches. The Llano site offers unique possibilities for site-specificity within the physical landscape and proposals should consider the opportunities and constraints of working within a desert environment.

In July 2013, the California Arts Council received $2 million in savings from the 2013 State Assembly operating budget. The funds, directed to support arts and arts education programs in California communities via grants or direct services, must be encumbered during the 2013-2014 fiscal year and will not be used for administrative costs at the agency.
