Five local artists have been selected to serve for up to one year in various City of Sacramento departments to help to engage communities in the areas of climate and sustainability, community development, youth services, planning and transportation.
The five selected local artists have backgrounds in media, performance and visual arts and will work closely with City department teams to create messaging that reflects both the priorities of the departments and the many communities they serve.
I am working in the Department of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment. I have been visiting various Community Centers, meeting community, staff and visiting events. Here is a small sampling from my site visits. It is a tremendous honor to be apart of the Creative Corps and to work for the wonderful City of Sacramento!
