Neighborhood Empowerment & Placemaking
Many grassroots organizations and resident-based organizers are not given the space to influence investments in their neighborhoods. We believe communities are most successful and thriving when investments are resident-driven and when neighborhoods have access to culturally relevant art, nature and beauty every day.
- Communities thrive when residents are engaged in decisions.
- A 2017 cohort of 36 ambassadors influenced and informed CICF’s strategic plan. Learn more about that original group of ambassadors here.
OUR STRATEGIES INCLUDE:
- Supporting community-based assets and providing resources to neighborhoods
- Engaging in reciprocal relationships with residents that influence place-based transformations
- Expanding art and cultural experiences and programming in disinvested neighborhoods
- Influencing equitable development of the White River Master Plan
