Welcome to Cultural Alliance Nevada

Cultural Alliance Nevada, formerly the Nevada Alliance for Arts Education (NAAE), is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of arts, culture and arts education through advocacy, education and partnership. Cultural Alliance Nevada continues and expands upon the work of NAAE and its two decades of arts and arts education advocacy on the state and national levels, and successful partnerships and initiatives.

In 2015, Cultural Alliance Nevada (CAN) Engaged:

  • Nevada’s arts advocates in a dialogue with Governor Sandoval and members of the Nevada Legislature about investing in Nevada’s local economies and quality of life, and a superior education for our youth through arts and culture.
  • Nevada’s educators to promote arts education in Nevada’s schools and its relevance to creativity and innovation, so vital to Nevada’s future.
  • Nevadans across the state with Action Alerts to provide updates on critical issues and deadlines during the session, creating instant connections through the VoterVoice system.

The Results: The critical restoration of Nevada Arts Council’s budget with an increase of more than $300,000 per year. These dollars to our state arts agency will increase grants and services for Nevada’s arts and creative industries, and insure access to quality arts and arts education programs to Nevadans living in rural and urban communities alike.
