For Artists & Diverse Communities

Artists are not only an important driver of Santa Cruz’s creative economy; their dedication and work positively impact thousands, inspiring and enlivening life, and adding a dimension of hope and humanity to Santa Cruz and our region. 


Santa Cruz’s adjacency to Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area increases our impact. When artists share their vision through teaching, performance, DJ’ing, MC’ing or other leadership roles, everyone takes away a new perspective.

Arts-Based Opportunities

Santa Cruz is now among the most expensive places to live in the US:  working artists from diverse groups are increasingly at risk. Our mission forward programming provides:
