What is Art and Advocacy?

You can change and saves lives by being an Arts and Cultural Advocate in Amador County. When citizens connect, organize, and share, community growth and development happen.

Advocacy is at the cornerstone of AmadorArts work. As the designated local partner to the California Arts Council, AmadorArts understands how and why the arts are central to community growth, healing, and equity. We are here to implement state and federal art grant programs while holding advocacy central to the artistic and cultural process.
