Due to the traffic gridlock that is expected in conjunction with the National Football League Draft in downtown Nashville, we have moved the Creative Placemaking panel meeting to the South Central Tennessee Development District board room at 101 Sam Watkins Blvd., Mount Pleasant, TN 38474-4024. The panel meeting will still be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019, and will begin at 10:00 a.m. CST. Free parking is available onsite.
For those of you travelling for the meeting, this location will allow you to avoid Nashville via I-840.
For applicants dialing in to the meeting, the following directions are unchanged.
For your convenience, a telephone dial-in attendance option for Advisory Panel Meetings is available. If you choose the dial-in option:
- To connect, please dial 888-778-2006. You may dial in, on the appropriate day, approximately 5 minutes prior to your organization’s scheduled time listed above. The Commission makes every effort to maintain this schedule, but please dial in early in case we are ahead of schedule.
- Please mute your phone after being connected to the conference; no need to announce yourself to the group. When staff introduces your review, we will ask if a representative is on the line.
- You may unmute at the time of your grant’s review if prompted for a question and hang-up when finished.
In Creative Placemaking, partners from public, private, nonprofit and community sectors strategically shape the physical and social character of their neighborhood, town, city, or region around arts and cultural activities or assets.
The Creative Placemaking grant competition is designed to help communities enhance the distinctive local character of Tennessee places for positive economic and community outcomes.
The Tennessee Arts Commission expects to provide five to ten awards ranging from $5,000 to $8,000 for projects that occur in one place. Applications that involve partnerships of two or more towns, cities and/or counties can request up to $10,000. At least two awards will be made to eligible rural applicants.
Funded projects must take place between July 1, 2019 – June 15, 2020.
