Have a great idea for a creative placemaking project but no time to get it off the ground? Take advantage of National Arts Strategies’ new Creative Community Fellows Program, which includes a week-long retreat with fellow cultural “entrepreneurs,” a distance learning track, and an opportunity to pitch to funders and/or create crowdfunding campaigns. Applications are due May 7.
The Creative Community Fellows program will bring together a unique community of innovators committed to using arts and culture to design solutions for community problems. Led by experts and world-renowned thought leaders in social innovation, design thinking and creative placemaking, Fellows gain the tools, skills and networks to activate the ideas that will transform their communities.
The residential track will bring together 22 entrepreneurs under one roof for a week of learning and fostering connections. The online track for 28 Fellows will accommodate entrepreneurs who may not be able to travel. All 50 Fellows will connect online as a single community, sharing monthly updates on their projects’ progress and providing feedback on others’ updates.
Visit the National Arts Strategies website to learn more about the program and get involved. Apply to become a Fellow or share this information with those in your network.
