ACTA is proud to be the CAC’s official statewide partner in serving the folk & traditional arts field, and looks forward to another 40 years of making the arts flourish.
The ACTA board and staff attended the gala event at the Crest Theater in Sacramento on January 27 hosted by Annette Bening and featuring a dazzling line up of speakers and performers including Governor Jerry Brown and the National Poet Laureate – Fresno’s Juan Felipe Herrera, and several traditional arts icons such as the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, PJ and Roy Hirabayashi, the Great Wall Youth Orchestra, Ballet Folklorico de Sacramento, among others.
