We’re excited to be entering the homestretch of one of our most rewarding and complex engagements: an ongoing evaluation and capacity-building project with the James Irvine Foundation and its fifteen grantee-partners in the New California Arts Fund (NCAF) The foundation has provided a final round of major grants to support this diverse group of cultural organizations to support the twinned work of internal cultural change and community co-creation and engagement. The foundation has also helped those grantee-partners form a unique Learning Community that has become self-directed, with teams from each of the organizations facilitating annual convenings and learning exchanges and sharing insights about progressive change in the arts. One of those new grants supports Slover Linett’s inquiry with and for that Learning Community through 2021. Stay tuned for the public report that will follow in early 2022.

 

Meanwhile, you can download our 2017 report from the project here.

The complete NCAF cohort includes:  the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, California Shakespeare Theatre, Cornerstone Theater Company, Dell’Arte International, Ford Theatres, La Jolla Playhouse, Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americano, the Oakland Museum of California, the Old Globe, Pacific Symphony, Riverside Art Museum, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, The Music Center, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
