Since 2000, The Center for the Arts, a non-profit arts organization, has grown into a leading presenter of music, dance, theater, comedy, literary, visual art and family programming managing a 21,000 square foot venue in downtown Grass Valley and presenting over 150 events per year.
Once a summer, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada, near a former gold rush town, there’s a pop-up village that teaches beekeeping and sways to Afropop, where steampunk medicine shows cozy up to Arab Spring arts instigators. Where hiking and farm stands meet Apple researchers practicing street magic.
Drawing on California’s many facets–its wild-eyed dreams, its cultural savvy and technological edge, its down-to-earth rugged legacies–the California WorldFest in Grass Valley, CA shows how a small community can foster a friendly global arts hub within easy striking distance of the Bay Area
