Webinar recap on State of the Art Transportation Training

Catch up with our webinar on new creative placemaking technical assistance workshops

This past Tuesday, Ben Stone, T4America’s Director of Arts & Culture, and Patricia Walsh, Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Program Manager, spoke about our upcoming State of the Art Transportation Training. During the webinar we discussed the opportunity for three communities in 2018 to gain hands-on technical assistance to improve collaboration between local arts agencies and departments of transportation. The ultimate goal: use art to better address transportation challenges.

In the webinar, we explored relevant case studies, reviewed the application process, and answered questions. If you missed the webinar, you can find a recording below.

FAQs:

Where can I find more information on this opportunity?

Visit our State of the Art Training webpage to learn more about this opportunity and view the full webinar recording if you missed it. On the webpage you can find the PDF application and the link to apply. We recommend having your responses prepared in advance of starting the online application form.

Who are these workshops geared towards?

Please find more details of the eligibility requirements in the PDF application, but if you are looking to collaboratively and creatively solve your community’s unique transportation challenges and put into practice the concepts T4America explored in our recent Creative Placemaking Field Scan, we encourage you apply. As a reminder, the deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. EST, February 23, 2018.

Am I eligible to apply if my organization doesn’t have a transportation agency?

A chief goal of the State of the Art Transportation Training is to improve collaboration between local arts agencies and departments of transportation to better address transportation challenges. We recommend that you demonstrate in your application the role of local transit agencies (or the local equivalent) in helping to address your transportation challenges.

    Excellent webinar, thanks. Our region is in dire need of a major overhaul and some kind of regionally-based funding (at the moment we are locality funded, supplemented by federal and state monies). This webinar has helped identify ways to approach our own needs systematically.
