Civic Arts doesn’t use prefabricated, top-down approaches in our engagement initiatives. Rather, we work with project partners to devise ways in which artists and culture bearers can help foster meaningful and robust civic engagement processes that are grounded within larger community conversations. Creative expression is critically important for all communities. It’s a fundamental way in which communities grow and create identity, and we feel that it is crucial to honor these identities and expressions in the engagement process.

As cutting edge practitioners, we work hand-in-hand with organizational partners and artists of all stripes to develop engagement projects and processes. We love working at new intersections and we know each project helps expand our understanding of the messy and fertile spaces between the arts and civic conversations.

WE HELP MUNICIPAL AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS BRING ARTS AND CULTURE DIRECTLY INTO THEIR CONVERSATIONS WITH COMMUNITIES.

Civic Arts Engagement Planning work can help with:

  • Identifying and implementing key ways in which the arts can help to meet strategic engagement goals

  • Mapping local assets in partnership with local arts and culture partners

  • Creating partnership plans with local arts & culture partners

  • Coaching organizational staff on how to work with arts partners

  • Capturing and communicating how arts-based work can scale within the organization through press releases, case studies, and toolkits

Civic Arts has worked a long time in the field of arts-based community development. Would you like to talk more about how we can work together? Let us know your questions. Give us a call →
