The Community Partnership for Arts & Culture recently selected North Collinwood for its Artists in Residence initiative. This “two-year, $500,000 pilot program will focus its efforts on this relationship in Cle’s Waterloo Arts District.” The initiative will include:
- A micro-loan program for artists buying or rehabbing dwellings within the neighborhood,
- A micro-grant program to support artists’ work in carrying out community-based arts projects within the neighborhood,
- The development of a number of artist homeownership services, and
- A coordinated local and national marketing campaign on behalf of the program.
