From Sue Struve, Communications Manager, National Assembly of State Arts Agencies –
Are you looking for funding to support a community development or creative placekeeping initiative in your neighborhood? If so, tune in on Tuesday, February 9, to Federal Resources for Creative Community Development—a free web seminar designed to help you access federal funds and harness the power of the arts and culture for community development.
This seminar features a new Creative Placemaking Public Resources Guide that offers:
- a curated selection of federal funding sources that you can use to advance equitable community development,
- examples of initiatives that have transformed community development through creative partnerships, and
- practical tips on accessing federal grant programs.
A live demonstration of the guide’s powerful search functions will reveal often-overlooked federal resources for equitable community development, creative placemaking, and the arts. You’ll also hear from practitioners who have successfully leveraged public funding opportunities for creative placemaking.
Complete session details and registration information are available at http://bit.ly/2LdRvDc. This one-hour session is designed for arts nonprofits, community development groups, state and local government agencies, arts advocates, cultural district managers, and creative placemaking practitioners. All organizations that are pursuing arts-based community development initiatives are welcome to participate.
This one-time event is offered through a partnership between the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations and Metris Arts Consulting.
