ArtPlace Names Re-Locate a Finalist for Creative Placemaking Grant

Re-Locate is one of 90 finalists for an ArtPlace America grant, an award that would fund immersive social artists and transdisciplinary partners working with Kivalina to reframe and support a community-led master planning process for village expansion.

ArtPlace invests in “‘creative placemaking’ projects that involve cross-sector partners committed to strengthening the social, physical, and economic fabric of their communities.” Forty out of nearly 1,300 nationwide applicants will receive grants.

If Re-Locate and Kivalina are selected for an award, ArtPlace America will join us in creating a Kivalina territorial master plan—an assemblage of encounters and conversation pieces that register, recognize, and re-present decisions made by local institutions in Kivalina related to community demands concerning global climate change, governance, and indigeneity.

This multimedia Master Plan will make the decisions made in Kivalina about village expansion, and the issues underlying these decisions, visible to potential supporters, funders, and communities in similar situations from around the world.
