The California Art Leaders Investments (CALI) Catalyst grant program supports individual artists and arts workers whose bold actions are tangibly helping underrepresented communities—Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQIA+, and people with disabilities—gain more influence and power in California’s arts and culture sector.  We consider these bold actions, whether they have already taken place or are in progress, to be “changemaking” because they are shifting the needle for underrepresented communities to have more influence and power, and moving the sector towards greater inclusion, access, diversity, and equity.

CALI Catalyst is open to individuals and teams of individuals. Applicants can apply for funding directly or be nominated for unrestricted awards of up to $5,000.
