The Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy (CCACP) at the University of Oregon sustains and strengthens arts, culture and heritage in the American West through research, policy, education, and community engagement.
In its main objective to foster civic engagement and cultural resource development in the American West, CCACP will, through research and education, support policymakers and cultural sector professionals to:
- Cultivate public participation in the arts; Foster creative activities;
- Preserve cultural heritage; and
- Develop sustainable community cultural development.
Institute faculty, students, and affiliate members conduct and disseminate policy-relevant research, and create and provide professional development opportunities to address the needs of current and future leaders in a broadly defined cultural sector.
The Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy's 2014-2015 Annual Bulletin and Graduate Student Research Journal is now online!
