Imagination Celebration lands NEA grant

Posted By on Mon, Jul 16, 2012 at 4:36 PM

Imagination Celebration has announced that it will receive $50,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts as part of its Our Town grant initiative. Specifically, Imagination was awarded the grant for the What IF... Festival of Innovation and Imagination, now three years old and slated for Sept. 15. (Read more about it here and here.)

What If festival

Our Town grants, according to Imagination's press release, are designed to encourage efforts for creative placemaking (a topic we covered earlier this year, here), a notion that cultural events, organizations and projects can become economic drivers for cities. What IF is among about 80 grant-winning activities; other projects include cultural feasibility studies led by city-arts organization partnerships, arts centers meant to reinvigorate downtowns, and cultural plans.
