THANK YOU for supporting Alliance for California Traditional Arts!

Since 1997, the Alliance for California Traditional Arts has invested more than $4.9 million to the folk and traditional arts field across California. Your support helps us sustain the growth of tradition bearers: individuals who are rooted in the cultural life of a community, who transmit what they believe, do, and create, from one generation to the next. Together, we can help people connect to their past and keep folk and traditional arts a central part of their lives today and tomorrow.
