for general operating support
The Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County supports individual artists and strengthens arts organizations through technical and professional development assistance programs and through grants programs for small and mid-sized organizations. Its SPECTRA arts education program, although reduced in size due to school budget cuts, provides teaching artists to half of the county’s schools, and its Open Studios Tour is a much-beloved local tradition.
