Taiko Community Alliance Receives California Arts Council “Statewide and Regional Networks” Grant



The California Arts Council, a state agency, announced it plans to award $21,050 to the Taiko Community Alliance (TCA) as part of its Statewide and Regional Networks program. TCA is one of only twenty-eight grantees statewide for this program.

The Statewide and Regional Networks (SRN) program is rooted in the California Arts Council’s vision to nurture collaborative service organizations and networks that advance the arts and artists in the state. An arts service organization provides specialized, practical services to working artists, constituent organizations and cultural community. Collectively, these networks help to activate California Arts Council constituents, the arts community, stakeholders, and the public.

“Our Statewide and Regional Networks grantees are key leaders in preserving and growing California’s arts ecosystem,” said Donn K. Harris, Chair of the California Arts Council. “We are proud to support the important work of the Taiko Community Alliance and their mission to empower the people and advance the art of taiko.”

TCA looks forward to utilizing the funds towards activities and events in the 2016-2017 year, and would like to recognize our Fundraising Committee, chaired by Rome Hamner and Derek Oye for their work on this grant. TCA also received a grant from the California Arts Council in 2015.
