The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced that the City of Wichita has been approved for a $75,000 award in support of “A City Where I Belong: A Toolkit for Artists.”
This is one of 57 grants nationwide, totaling $4,175,000, that the NEA has approved in the ‘Our Town’ category. These placemaking grants support projects that integrate arts, culture and design activities into local efforts to strengthen and authentically engage communities in order to advance local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes in communities.
The City’s Division of Arts and Cultural Services will partner with Harvester Arts for “A City Where I Belong” to gather community partners and individual artists to analyze and interpret the City’s RFP and percent for art processes, create an accessible toolkit for local artists to participate in public projects and deploy temporary art engagements that collect feedback from the public.
