A leadership initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with LISC

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) are pleased to present the inaugural Local Leaders’ Institute on Creative Placemaking, an intensive workshop designed to help participants implement successful creative placemaking projects that strengthen their local communities. The Institute will take place July 16-18, 2019 in Washington, DC.

Up to six teams, comprised of one local/tribal government leader and one arts/design/cultural leader, will receive tailored advice from experienced creative placemaking experts on a range of topics including partnership with artists, community engagement, project management, and sustaining creative placemaking work.

For this inaugural Institute, NEA and LISC invite applications from small- and mid-sized communities, federally recognized tribes, and rural areas. Eligible applicants have submitted an application to the NEA’s Our Town program for funding in FY2019.
