The CCF JourneyThe moment you have all been waiting for is here… That’s right, applications for the Creative Community Fellows program are now open! You have witnessed the growth of a network of leaders working at the intersection of culture and community. You saw the progression of community projects that strive for social and physical transformation. We are thrilled to be expanding this network by creating a second cohort of the program.

As you know, Creative Community Fellows is a nine-month initiative that gives Fellows tools, training and access to a community of support as they design and drive their projects forward. You also know the program is composed of both a residential and an online track. This year, all Fellows will take monthly online courses together. Each month focuses on a different topic such as budgeting, networks & partners and forms of capital & support and provides a space for Fellows to engage in dialogue and share experience. Fellows will continue to share updates on their projects with each other and the field through this space – the Creative Community Blog – and have the rare chance to engage face-to-face with funders and leaders in the field of creative placemaking whether in-person or online.

We are looking for more people like you – artists, activists, community organizers, administrators and entrepreneurs from around the world who are using arts and culture to drive physical and social transformations in their communities. Know someone working in this space? Spread the word. Is this you? Apply to be a Fellow.
