Nevada County Community Leadership Institute

Arts & Culture Induction

Each year Nevada County Arts Council, in partnership with a local arts organization, co-chairs an Arts & Culture induction for new and emerging leaders across all sectors, as part of Nevada County Community Leadership Institute. We offer an overview of regional arts infrastructures, their programmatic diversity and our unique place in California. Up to thirty of our regional arts leaders participate in panels, presentations and Q&A. New leaders participate in site visits—and a bit of improv—while learning about the social and economic value of the arts and the impact it has on our local culture and lifestyle.

Want to get involved?

If you are new to Nevada County and want to explore community leadership in a variety of ways, check out Nevada County Community Leadership Institute here. If you are an arts leader new to the community, we invite you to make contact! We’d like to help you find your feet and learn from you in the process.


Our annual Arts & Culture Inductions take place on the fourth Friday of March. Our next induction takes place on March 27 2020 at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.
