Community Arts Program Information

The Community Arts Program (CAP) provides support and opportunities for artists and cultural organizations to teach, perform, and exhibit at host facilities around the City to showcase and celebrate the community’s unique history and varied ethnic heritage. This program is designed to encourage creative interaction among artists, residents, schools and neighborhoods, as well as to encourage collaboration between artists and community-based organizations/services.
All potential Community Hosts must fill out the Community Host Form to apply for artistic services under the Community Arts Program. The Community Host Form outlines the responsibilities of the host and the artist under the service agreement. All services are funded by the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department. Failure to comply with the terms of the Community Host Form may result in the cancellation of the service or non-payment for artists.
