UPDATE FROM OFFICE OF ARTS AND CULTURE
To address the COVID-19 public health crisis, Sacramento’s Office of Arts and Culture is providing support to the local arts community in several important ways, including working with partners to develop online content and a list of resources for individual artists and arts nonprofits.
OAC also is coordinating with local organizations and the mayor’s office to develop emergency relief plans for the creative economy, and working with artists-in-residence and grantees regarding changes to their projects.
In addition, many of OAC’s staff are available to offer assistance via email.
For up-to-date information, sign up for the OAC newsletter at arts.cityofsacramento.org or follow OAC on Facebook or Twitter.
