Hello, we are the Capitol Creative Alliance
CCA is a union of four local creative groups — Creativity+, Design Sacramento, Roseville UX and Sac DESCO. Each group has been building the community that we longed to see in the greater Sacramento region. Our years spent growing this community gives us a deeper understanding of their needs, and of the needs of the Sacramento region.
We’ve come together to be a hub for our members and to make our programming more accessible; to foster more impactful events and build a rich and supportive community; and to advocate for the creative economy with one voice. We bring creatives together for education, inspiration and connections. We believe a healthy creative community has the power to elevate our region’s quality of life and economic prosperity.
New episodes of the Creativity Speaks podcast are released every other week. Check out all of our podcasts and listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify or search for "Creativity Speaks" on your favorite podcast platform.
Our mission is to celebrate, empower, inspire and connect the creative community. We do this by bringing our community, traditional and non-traditional creatives, together. Our programming consists of Creativity Speaks, BrainTrust, Live Design Sessions, and other networking events.
Our Education Program is designed to improve awareness and access to a field of design for local youth. Beyond that, we aim to encourage students to further their education in design, and to improve design education overall.
Through our Workforce Program we strive to help emerging designers find careers in the local economy through our Ascenders Academy. For current designers we offer office hours, portfolio review and design showcases that allow us to support designers in every stage of their careers.
