Happy New Year from the California Arts Council -- Lots to happen in 2011
It's the end of 2010, and it's been a busy year at the California Arts Council. Next year looks like it will be just as exciting. The Arts Council launched a major campaign with Million Plates for the Arts, and the costs of an Arts Plate was determined to be tax deductible. Californians can now donate directly to the arts statewide through their state tax returns -- another tax deductible way to support California arts. The next Director will be hired by the Council rather than be a political appointee. Teens across the state are gearing up for this round of California Poetry Out Loud. The Creating Public Value program is currently open and awaiting applications. And the Arts Council is accepting nominations for the next California Poet Laureate.
This is just a smattering of what's happening at the California Arts Council -- in addition to our successful efforts at social networking with Facebook and Twitter, the ongoing enhancement of our website with tons of useful information about arts jobs, other grants, artist calls, arts festivals, and a constant stream of arts news from established sources and insider tidbits.
May you all have a happy New Year and an artful 2011! -- from the California Arts Council
