For over 25 years, the Clackamas County Arts Alliance (CCAA) has been the hub for all things art-related as stated in our mission – “Keeping arts and culture central to life in Clackamas County.” The purpose of our work is to support, develop, and promote access to arts and culture in every community throughout the county.
With a budget of just $323,780 of contributed revenue and public investment, CCAA achieves a wide variety of arts activities and cultural enhancements. The scope of work for the Clackamas County Arts Alliance continues to grow in response to county-wide demands. Whether benefitting at-risk youth, delivering school programs, enhancing tourism initiatives, facilitating community beautification, or using art as a healing tool in healthcare environments, the value of the arts in our communities cannot be understated. Arts and culture are increasingly essential to the social and economic well-being of our county.
More importantly, the arts reflect a community’s vitality, its values, and its humanity. Now more than ever, investment in artists and arts organizations is so important to post-pandemic healing and recovery in Clackamas County.
We invite you to review all that we proudly accomplished during a year of unprecedented challenge, as well as unexpected inspiration. As you’ll see from the numerous letters of support from our partners, the Clackamas County Arts Alliance is keeping arts and culture alive in our communities.
