The Creative Community Fellows have made it to the final stage of the program. They've refined their ideas and presented their perfect pitch. They've received feedback from peers in the program, the NAS team and grantmakers and leaders in the area of creative placemaking. Today, we launch their crowd-funding campaigns on RocketHub.
You've followed their journey through the Creative Community Blog and you know that Fellows represent a diverse range of projects from using puppetry to engage residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias, taking old t-shirts and transforming them into hand woven works of art in order to increase literacy and community to an art and food production co-op in the heart of rural Missouri that crosses generational and cultural boundaries.
We are so proud of how far the Fellows have come throughout this journey and encourage you to check out how they are working to effect change in their communities, learn more about what’s next on their journey and consider helping them get there.
