Arts + Creativity Center in Santa Fe gets boost from NEA grant

Creative Santa Fe has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to help fund community engagement and design fees for its planned Arts + Creativity Center.

The center, intended to provide an affordable place for artists both to live and work, has been targeted for an area along Siler Road and is a project that is being overseen by the City of Santa Fe, New Mexico Inter-Faith Housing and Creative Santa Fe.

The award of the NEA grant was announced Wednesday by New Mexico Arts, a division of the state Department of Cultural Affairs. It said 275 applications were submitted for the Our Town program grants, with 69 being chosen for a total of almost $5 million in funding.

According to the news release, NEA CHairman Jane Chu said,  “Creative Santa Fe demonstrates the best in creative community development and whose work will have a valuable impact on its community. Through Our Town funding, arts organizations continue to spark vitality that support neighborhoods and public spaces, enhancing a sense of place for residents and visitors alike.”
