(ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif.) Californians for the Arts, a statewide arts advocacy organization, is partnering with both the Alameda County Arts Commission and the Arts and Culture Commission of Contra Costa County to host a free 90-minute event next week.

Californians for the Arts hosts an annual Regional Conversation. The 2022 Regional Conversation will focus on the changing landscape for artists, arts workers and organizations across the state.

The East Bay Regional Conversation will be held virtually on Tuesday, Jan. 11 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will feature presentations from all three groups.

Additionally, this discussion will feature updates on state, local and federal advocacy constraints and priorities as well as calls to action for interested and passionate residents. To save the arts, residents must act fast.

All attendees will have a chance to pose questions and engage in earnest discussion about the state of creative arts on a personal, regional or federal level.

Californians for the Arts will also host Regional Conversations in the South Bay, Sacramento area, San Diego area, Orange County and the Inland Empire throughout January. For more information about these events, click here.
