Since 2010, the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) has been working in partnership with The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to invest in California’s future arts leaders through individual professional development support, organizational capacity building, and new networking opportunities for the state’s emerging arts leaders. By completing this 20-minute survey, you will be helping us to collect critical information about arts leaders across the state.

Emerging arts leaders in California who complete this survey are also fulfilling one of the eligibility requirements for the California Art Leaders Investments (CALI) Accelerator program for professional development (formerly Next Gen Arts). If you have previously taken this survey, you do not need to take it again in order to qualify for CALI Accelerator funding. New survey-takers should check the CALI Accelerator grant program website at for more information on how and when you can begin applying for funds.

Finally, the personal information you provide will be treated confidentially and will have no bearing on your ability to receive future grants. Only summary data will be publicly shared with survey respondents, funders, and organizations in the arts field, and will not be attributed to individual respondents.

Thank you!
