Support for the Integration of Arts in Community Revitalization
The Kresge Foundation’s Arts and Culture Program seeks to build strong, healthy cities nationwide by promoting the integration of arts and culture in community revitalization. The Local Systems focus area funds projects that test the integration of arts and culture within municipal systems and other non-arts disciplines.
Support is provided for cross-sector/cross-disciplinary projects that embed arts and culture into local systems such as municipal departments, community financial networks, comprehensive planning efforts, human services networks, regional food hubs, etc.
Applicants may be anchor institutions in any sector that have a stake in and are located in a low-income, disinvested community. Applicants may also be nonprofit community partners, nonprofit artist collaboratives, and government entities.
Online applications may be submitted throughout the year. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the Local Systems focus area.
