“Site” seeing: 4 things you may not know about the CAC website

This week on the California Arts Council blog, we’re taking you on a “site” seeing tour of arts.ca.gov. If you’ve never before perused the items of our website’s drop-down menu, you may have overlooked some worthwhile stuff. Here’s the scoop on four great resources worth checking out!

1. Artist Calls & Arts Jobs.

If you’re an artist, arts administrator, or art student seeking work, or just an arts enthusiast looking to break into the field, these are for you.

  • This Artist Calls page includes organizations seeking various creative talents for exhibitions, performances, photography and film shoots, and more.
  • Next comes the Arts Jobs page—we maintain a comprehensive list of vacancies within arts organizations, whether it’s in the art department or accounting. (Most positions posted are in the state, but the occasional out-of-state opportunity is listed as well.)

All the listings can be sorted by specific criteria to help you zero in on whatever best suits your needs. Seeking candidates for a position, exhibition or performance? No problem. Take advantage of our easy-to-use submission forms to have your post included on the appropriate page!

2. Grants.

Obviously, our website features lots of info on the 15 different grant programs we administer. But did you know we got the memo about other grants, too? Our Grants webpage features a database for grants available from outside organizations—also easily sorted to get to what you’re looking for faster. If you’re a grantmaker that wants to give visibility to an opportunity, submit your information to editor@cac.ca.gov.

3. Conferences & Workshops.

Looking for learning opportunities as an arts administrator or educator? Need assistance navigating the world of grant writing or grantmaking? We’ve got a calendar of conferences, workshops, webinars, and training opportunities to help you sharpen your skill set and broaden your knowledge base. To recommend a listing to be added, shoot us an email at editor@cac.ca.gov.

4. Research & Reports.

Keeping up to date in the arts means staying informed of the latest in case studies, strategies, and science. We’ve collected hundreds of reports about the arts. Browse our research database by topic, explore our page of arts terms and concepts, or get some background on the benefits of the arts to education, the economy, and health.

P.S. Listings from most of these pages are regularly featured in our weekly Arts Council newsletter, ArtBeat. Sign up here and never miss the latest updates!
