It is a kick off party to announce the winning proposals for Great Places Near Eastside creative placemaking projects 2016!
The Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art (iMOCA) and Englewood Community Development Corporation (ECDC), and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) are partnering to support creative placemaking projects within the Near Eastside Great Places 2020 area–the ¼ mile radius around E. Washington & Oxford. We define ‘creative placemaking’ as people coming together to make positive physical, economic, and social impacts in their neighborhood through art, culture, and creativity.
About Great Places 2020:
Great Places 2020 is a collective impact effort to transform strategic Indianapolis neighborhoods into walkable town centers of culture, commerce, and community in conjunction with Indianapolis’s bicentennial in 2020. Three neighborhoods have been identified as these target areas, including the ¼ mile neighborhood centered around East Washington and Oxford Streets on the Near Eastside; 38th and Illinois Streets; and West Michigan and King Streets. Investments in livability, opportunity, vitality, and education build on existing neighborhood momentum with a vision for vibrant, mixed-use neighborhoods welcoming residents and visitors alike.
