Creative Placemaking

Workshops Available

State of the Art Transportation Training


Transportation for America is excited to announce State of the Art Transportation Training, a new opportunity for communities to better integrate artistic and cultural practices in transportation projects. With generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, and in partnership with Americans for the Arts (AFTA), T4America will be providing hands-on technical assistance workshops to three communities in 2018 to help them build their capacity for artistic and cultural practices.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn how your city can leverage creative placemaking in transportation projects, gain hands-on technical assistance geared towards addressing your community’s unique challenges, and put in practice the concepts T4America explored in our Creative Placemaking Field Scan.

Complete information about the application can be found in this informational PDF. Be sure to apply online here by 5:00 p.m. EST, February 23, 2018.
