This is a rare opportunity to build your skills in creative placemaking and build connections with people who can help you help communities.
To be considered for the scholarship, please send a request of no more than 2 pages to leo@artsbuildcommunities. In your request, describe the work that you do or have done to benefit communities in either the Black Belt or Appalachia, and what you hope to learn while at the program. If you are given the scholarship, please expect to ‘pay forward’ what you learned within six months. (You can conduct a workshop, create an event, or do a presentation to an influential group.)
The deadline for the Southeast Leadership Summits is February 23. For the Appalachian Leadership Summit, it is March 30.
