Art Lives HereArtist and Stakeholder Meeting

ALH logo2_insert1
Meeting: Monday, November 4 from 7 to 9pm

The Art Lives Here initiative invites community members, property owners, artists and nonprofit organizations who are part of the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts District to share ideas and best practices of creative placemaking projects. The Artist and Stakeholder meeting will be held November 4, 2013 from 7 to 9 pm at the Brentwood Arts Exchange, 3901 Rhode Island Ave, Brentwood, MD 20722. The event is free.

The project is facilitated by Joe’s Movement Emporium and funded by ArtPlace America with support from the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Through the Art Lives Here initiative, the artist community is partnering with local businesses, two community development corporations, four cities, and Prince George’s County to increase regional visibility for the Gateway Arts District. Temporary and long-term art projects and programs will enliven the two-mile historic U.S Route 1 corridor to support existing small business, attract commercial in-fill, prepare for a new round of anchor developments, and further strengthen our diverse and streetwise creative communities.

At the meeting, past projects of creative placemaking will be shared along with personal stories of some who led the projects and some who enjoyed the benefits of these programs and events. A new RFP for 2014 creative placemaking projects also will be released at this time.

The Brentwood Arts Exchange is located at 3901 Rhode Island Ave, Brentwood, MD.
