To provide a mechanism for more effective local arts planning.

To help organize and increase private and public sector support for existing and new cultural and educational activity.

Develop rural and suburban areas which have not fully participated in arts programs.

The Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council (YSRAC) is the public agency designated by the counties of Yuba and Sutter as the local partner with the California Arts Council. The purpose of the California Arts Council State-Local Partnership Program is to increase public awareness of and participation in the arts, to serve as the cultural planning agency in partnership with both counties, to encourage local communities to reach their full potential by developing arts programs that serve local needs, and to provide access to professional quality arts in under-served areas throughout Yuba and Sutter counties.

The YSRAC plays an essential role in our communities to make sure the best quality and widest variety of arts and cultural activities and presentations are available for the populations of Yuba and Sutter counties:

  • YSRAC provides technical assistance to bring top quality art programs to community events such as the California Prune Festival, the Bok Kai Festival, and the Yuba Sutter County Fair.
  • YSRAC produces an annual Very Special Arts Festival which includes over 250 students with physical and mental disabilities who enjoy visual and performing arts activities with professional artists.
  • YSRAC produces a bi-monthly arts e-newsletter which features artists and arts activities of the area. Through this effort YSRAC generates positive interest and attention to the cultural resources of the Yuba-Sutter area.
