CLARA — the E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts — is a 501(c)3 organization with a mission of providing education and resources to unleash the creative potential of local arts and culture in Sacramento. We do this by:
- Bringing arts education programs to public schools with low arts access
- Teaching professional development workshops that help adult artists further professionalize their work
- Offering low-cost rehearsal and administrative space to arts organizations in our community
- Producing showcases and other convenings which allow local artists to build community, more easily collaborate with peers, and be connected with additional artistic opportunities
CLARA’s programs provide the resources and supports necessary to keep local creative workers here at home, while also building the next generation of Sacramento’s creative thinkers.
