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 build stronger communities through the arts to enhance the distinctive character of local 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, 2017 – June 30, 2018.
