This is your requested update for Winter 2012! Thank you for your continued support and interest in Sacramento’s Arts!
A Letter from the Executive Director:
As the year 2012 comes to a close, I find myself looking at the wonderful achievements of the Capitol Indie Collective, only possible through your generosity in spirit, time, and donations.
When we founded the CIC in July of 2011 and gained Fiscal Sponsorship through the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission (SMAC), we began a mission and a movement, providing education and a platform for independent artists to be inspired, practice their art form, and deliver compelling works of art, making impact with personal meaning and social relevance from several different disciplines, backgrounds, and demographics in a sustainable, stimulating and nurturing environment.
Since our inception we have had 2 Fashion Challenges, Sponsored CCD Expo, launched Media Mentoring with “Miss Representation”, scored Silent Movies with Live Indie Bands at LAUNCH, Celebrated our first Birthday with the CIC B-Day Bash, and launched the funding for 2 residencies.
With the valuable guidance of our board members, Tracy Saville, Ben Catlin, Owen T. Jones, and Tony Chopelas, we have been able to execute these programs and have a website with all volunteer help. I cannot tell you how much this means to me. It is your support that keeps the CIC going.
2013 holds much opportunity for the CIC. While we have scaled back a bit to focus on infrastructure, we will still continue the Annual Fashion Challenge as a live event and the Media Mentoring program will continue through our website. Next year we hope to bring at least ten more people to the American Film Market in an effort to educate, inspire, and gain distribution for our local film producers. We can only do that with your generosity.
We are in the process of obtaining our own 501c3 designation so we can launch membership and give Artists what they need directly. In the meantime, SMAC still sponsors us and our sister company, Cow Town Film Productions, LLC has continued their commitment to the CIC and hopes to provide us with an affordable building in 2013.
I wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous New Year. I look forward to connecting with you soon. My greatest hope is that I can continue to serve the Artistic Community and further Artists from all disciplines through the CIC’s mission.
If you would like to volunteer or intern with us please contact me directly. If you would like to donate or sponsor an event, artist, or the Indiewood Bus, please go through our website here.

On behalf of everyone at the CIC, I sincerely thank you for your much needed support.
Together we can be champions for the Arts.
