Arts, Culture & Creativity Month | April 2024

In 2019, CA for the Arts successfully campaigned for the state to recognize and celebrate the arts by declaring April as Arts, Culture & Creativity Month (ACCM) through a concurrent resolution passed in the California Senate. In 2021, an additional resolution was declared to recognize artists as second responders.

CA for the Arts directs this annual month-long spotlight on the arts to raise visibility and awareness about the value of our sector, empower arts advocates to take action, and spur greater investments in our industry and workforce. The arts are a tool for change. They’re what push our society, our economy, and our communities forward. All month-long, CA for the Arts provides programs and services to help Californians see the power of the arts, and ensure that arts advocates have a voice in government, business, and community matters — all to help society move forward.

CA for the Arts' goal is to activate the state and make it easy and educational to participate in ACCM. Use the FREE toolkits and resources to generate a social media campaign, get your local government to proclaim April as Arts, Culture & Creativity Month, learn how to conduct a visit with your legislator, and leverage local media to support getting your community talking about the value of the arts.
