July 29, 2020 - The Arts and Culture Enrichment program (ACE) is intended to integrate arts, culture, heritage, design, and other creative disciplines as strategies that strengthen the City of Savannah’s economic, physical, and social vitality. Arts and Culture are important contributors to the vibrancy of Savannah’s neighborhoods, and the City of Savannah supports opportunities for art and culture to enhance and enrich the quality of life for Savannah residents and guests.
An annual call for Proposals is held each year to align fiscal year resources with the City of Savannah’s priorities in a measurable way. The City seeks proposals that position arts, cultural, and creative programs as catalysts to realize the City’s goals of increasing economic growth through skill-building, employment, and entrepreneurship; improving the aesthetics of built environments; building and reinforcing a strong sense of community; engaging, developing and inspiring young people through imaginative approaches; and to increase access to art and culture in close proximity to where residents live. Submitted proposals are reviewed and evaluated by members of the Cultural Affairs Commission, who are City of Savannah citizens appointed through an application process by the Mayor and Aldermen.
The application process opened July 10, 2020, and are due Monday, August 10, 2020.
