“THE NEW NOW” CREATIVE NEIGHBORHOOD: COVID-19 Work Project
Description: The Office of Arts and Culture and Create Boulder launched the Creative Neighborhood: COVID-19 Work Projects to support artists and bolster the “social infrastructure” of our community. In the spirit of the Work Projects Administration of the 1930s, this program quickly delivers funding to artists who have lost gigs, had contracts or events cancelled, been laid off, or have otherwise been put in a vulnerable position due to the necessary restrictions to control the COVID-19 Pandemic. At the same time, the projects will leverage the talent of artists to unite and vitalize our neighborhoods with the goal of either a) helping their neighbors stay connected during the restrictions, or b) after restrictions are lifted, helping people to reconnect, recover and adjust to new social conditions.
Artists: Jason T. Graves,
