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.


  • 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
