About Truckee Arts Alliance

Nevada County Arts Council, by resolution of Nevada County Board of supervisors, is State-Local Partner with California Arts Council. A 501c3 not-for-profit organization, we facilitate collaborative efforts that promote and sustain the visual, literary and performing arts of Nevada County to advance the cultural, social and economic life of our community.

Following new legislation, Nevada County Arts Council helped to secure two designations as California Cultural Districts for Nevada County in 2017. We are now unique across the state as the only rural county to be recognized for the breadth and diversity of its cultural assets in all its incorporated communities. Nevada County’s two California Cultural Districts are Truckee Cultural District and Grass Valley-Nevada City Cultural District. In Truckee, it is Truckee Arts Alliance, a fiscally sponsored project of Nevada County Arts Council, that serves as administrative lead for Truckee Cultural District. Truckee Cultural District is a formal partnership between The Town of Truckee, Truckee Chamber, Visit Truckee, Truckee Public Art Commission and Truckee Arts Alliance.

Truckee Arts Alliance’s Mission

Truckee Arts Alliance is a collaborative of artists across all disciplines inviting community stakeholders who believe in the role of the arts as a lever for change. It is fiscally sponsored by Nevada County Arts Council. Truckee Arts Alliance inspires, catalyzes and advocates for art and culture in Truckee and Eastern Nevada County. It engages the Truckee arts community as one sound “voice” for the arts and supports the work of Truckee Cultural District under the California Cultural District Program. Racial and Cultural Equity at Nevada County Arts Council and Truckee Arts Alliance.Equity is a core value of both Nevada County Arts Council and Truckee Arts Alliance. We are committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive and equitable environment for the people we work with and for our community. We believe every member of our team enriches us by exposing us to a broad range of ways to understand and engage with the world, identify challenges, and to discover, design and deliver solutions. In turn we expect that those who work with us will promote cultural equity through assisting us with the identification and removal of barriers and cultivation of community, and we expect that applicants will be conversant in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion best practices, as well as key cultural competencies.
