We want to ignite artistic creativity in every district, in every city, and within every community throughout Broward!
The arts can be a strong catalyst to improve the health and vitality of our community as we evolve. More people and institutions need to create arts projects throughout Broward that celebrate what is special about here where we live. By doing so, the arts will engage our diverse residents and attract visitors to enjoy unique arts experiences. Ultimately, Broward will be known for its arts just as many other places across the US.
The arts not only provide an outlet to bring out the creativity that exists in our community, but they also bring value to us as individuals, communities, and within workplaces.
The arts thrive in Broward in ways that ignite creativity, invoke community pride, and create a sense of place that connects people to where they live and to each other.
We will support projects that have a high level of artistic excellence and that effectively leverage and celebrate the assets of our Broward community to making a lasting imprint.
We want to ignite artistic creativity in every district, in every city, and within every community throughout Broward. This means artists, organizations, and community members use highly creative art forms to honor and celebrate what is uniquely authentic to Broward and/or a particular community. Authentic assets in Broward range from our cultural diversity to our iconic beaches. Each city and neighborhood has its own unique assets that we want you to bring to life and celebrate using the arts in deeply immersive and creative ways. We are looking for fresh, out-of-the box ideas that push art forms to a new level (not the same-old-same). You can present an old art form in a new way, present a new concept, or combine art forms in new ways.
Knowing that the arts invoke community pride and create a sense of place, we want people to interact with and enjoy the arts in new and different ways. Projects need to use to the arts that enable people to have an experience that makes them feel proud to be part of this community. Your arts project needs to reflect the people and the community in which the arts will exist and cause people to develop a personal appreciation and respect for the value and the energy that the arts bring to their community. The arts must create a sense of place that connects people to where they live and to others in their community. If the arts enrich or enhance the quality of life in their community, then everyone will develop a greater sense pride and feel like they belong. The result is that people will be attracted to live and visit the community for years to come.
The Foundation is looking to support projects that have a high level of artistic excellence and that effectively leverage and celebrate the assets of our Broward community to making a lasting imprint.
