Creative Placemaking Grants
(January 2, 2024 to June 30, 2024 - Pilot)
The mission of the Creative Placemaking Grant is to provide support for collaborative partnerships that build capacity engaging a community, district, or neighborhood through Public Art strategies which enhance economic development and advocate for social and environmental change.
Five $10,000 awards will be issued during this pilot program.
Creative Placemaking proposals must establish a partnership between a 501(c) organization or Municipal Office and an artist and/or cultural professional from initial planning through execution. Creative Placemaking proposals take many different forms. Programs should challenge the spaces they inhabit in new and innovative ways. They will also activate underserved populations and geographic regions within Cumberland County while demonstrating the importance of public art as a catalyst for progress.
