The City of Zanesville is looking to continue to build on the momentum of the presence of art downtown. To go along with our First Friday Art Walks and annual Y Bridge Arts Festival, the City is looking to apply for funding through the “Our Town” federal arts grant.
“Our Town” is a grant offered by The National Endowment For The Arts (NEA) that provides funding for “creative placemaking” projects, ranging from $25,000- $200,000.
These projects should combine the arts and culture with community revitalization work, such as public safety, economic development, job growth, infrastructure, and transportation.
The goal of OUR TOWN is to link makers working within the arts with local government to create projects that will have a positive impact on the development of downtown Zanesville.
