Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks is teaming up with Utah Division of Arts & Museums to welcome ArtPlace America to Utah!
ArtPlace America is a 10-year collaboration among 15 foundations, eight federal agencies, and six financial institutions who are
dedicated to positioning art and culture as a core sector of comprehensive community planning and development in order to help strengthen the social, physical, and economic fabric or communities.
program offers $50,000 to $500,000 to support place-based planning and
development projects strengthening
communities through arts and culture.
Since 2011, ArtPlace has invested $66.875 million, to 227 projects across 152 communities of all sizes within 43 states and the District of Columbia.
ArtPlace is specifically looking for successful Utah applications.
We urge you to attend on of two informational sessions on their National Creative Placemaking Fund:
- January 19 | 10 AM to 12 PM | Summit County Library, Richins Building, Room 133 (Lower Level) | 1885 W. Ute Blvd., Park City, UT 84098
- January 20 | 12 PM to 2 PM | Viridian Event Center, 8030 S. 1825 W., West Jordan, UT 84088 (A light lunch will be served)
- What is creative placemaking?
- What makes a competitive application?
- What does the application process entail?
- A discussion on how the arts have been used to "move the needle" to address relevant and challenging community issues.
Who should attend?
The event is free and open to the public! Anyone and everyone interested in learning about how you can be supported to creatively make change in your community! Artists, arts organizations,
designers, community developers, planners, city and town administrators,
community residents, business owners, faith and religious groups,
philanthropists, and more are invited to learn more about arts-based strategies to community development. The National Creative Placemaking Fund will fund anyone regardless of tax-exempt status.
Consider these questions:
- Where will you work to address this community-based challenge or opportunity?
- Has the community identified a planning and development challenge or opportunity it wants to address?
- What role can arts and culture play in strengthening communities?
- Who sits at "the table" when planning and development decisions are being made?
These and other questions will be addressed at the workshop. We hope you'll join us.
Please RSVP by filling out this form by January 15.
