In 2016 the MASOB embarks on a path to provide new opportunities to Baltimore artists and art places within the City.

Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts and the City of Baltimore solicit proposals for the FY2017 National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Our Town grant program. Due date for proposals: August 29, 2016

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Our Town grant program supports creative placemaking projects that help to transform communities into lively, beautiful, and resilient places with the arts at their core. Creative placemaking is when artists, arts organizations, and community development practitioners deliberately integrate arts and culture into community revitalization work – placing arts at the table with land-use, transportation, economic development, education, housing, infrastructure, and public safety strategies. This funding supports local efforts to enhance quality of life and opportunity for existing residents, increase creative activity, and create a distinct sense of place.
