What are Neighborhood Art Funds?
Neighborhood Art Funds are for community members and groups that are interested in collaborative art projects for Raleigh’s neighborhoods that support artistic and cultural exploration, connection and understanding.
These funds can provide community groups with up to $1000 from the City of Raleigh for art projects that involve the local community. All projects are initiated, planned, and carried out by community members.
These funds for are for neighborhood-initiated art projects throughout the City of Raleigh. Residents can design their own projects; drawing on their individual, group and community assets, skills and talents. This funding also empowers neighborhood groups to utilize and pay local artists/instructors, etc., to help create their own community-based art ideas.
