The next Creative City application deadline is a little less than a month away! The deadline to apply is Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 11:59PM EST.

Creative City supports artists who are interested in reimagining places for art, engaging public imagination, and inspiring community members to share in civic experiences in the public realm in the city of Boston. Learn more about funding priorities, eligibility, criteria, and access the online application.

Got questions or need some technical assistance? Here are some ways Creative City staff can help.

INFO SESSIONS
There are three more info sessions taking place next week:
1.30.17 | Creative City Info Session | Harvard Ed Portal, Allston, 5:30PM-7:00PM

2.2.17 | Creative City Info Session | Roxbury Innovation Center, Roxbury, 5:30PM-7:00PM

Attending an info session is encouraged for all potential applicants, but not required to apply for Creative City. Info sessions are designed to provide space for artists to learn more about the program priorities, funding process, and grantee requirements. Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the program background and the grant guidelines, and to bring questions regarding the program and/or funding process.
