YEAR THREE: HOME

Now in Year Three, Belonging manifests as HOME, and elicits perspectives on cultural identity from our less represented populations. Ideas of “home” are being explored through the lens of art salons, our gold country history, our recovering native population, and our recent immigrants. Critical bridge building tools are emerging through creative practices, as we meet.

In addition to this, we are linking Belonging | HOME to our work with a new program for organizations wishing to explore issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and this will manifest as Cultural Equity Convening during the winter months. Our commitment to OF/BY/FOR ALL is helping us deepen community impact, advance goals around diversity, equity, and inclusion, provide professional development, and develop new, community-centered ways of working. Being part of OF/BY/FOR ALL’s change network is the beginning of a journey for us, just as HOME represents a sensitive conversation on what it means to be “at home.” You can find out more about our work with OF/BY/FOR ALL here.

HOME Convening
Miners Foundry in Nevada City

In our third year of BELONGING – HOME we joined the #changenetwork of OFBYFOR ALL.

Tracy Pepper, Ruth Chase, and Nevada County Arts Council attended the OF/BY/FORALL UN Conference where we engaged in workshops to develop tools and to self check on how we engage our amazing and diverse community.

Please check back for updated information. For more detailed information on all three BELONGING projects go here.


HOME is an initiative of Nevada County Art Council led by Artist Ruth Chase, generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists in Communities Program.
