Arts Build Communities is honored to receive a $25,000 grant from the prestigious Geraldine R.d Dodge Foundation. The ongoing support of the grant is being used to enhance our programs that serve communities and creative placemakers. Those programs include community coaching, the Master Practitioner Certificate in Creative Placemaking, thought leadership, New Jersey Creative Vitality Index, and leading the Sustainable Jersey Arts and Culture Task Force. ABC is also involved in several creative placemaking and community service initiatives through partnerships with Creative New Jersey and Rutgers University's The Collaborative: A Center for Community-Based Learning, Service, and Public Scholarship
This is the third year that the Dodge Foundation has supported Arts Build Communities. This grant is the largest that ABC has received from the foundation.
