Creative Placemaking is a simple concept that can transform communities and activate spaces in a way that contributes to people’s health, happiness, and sense of connectedness. We do so through our Creative Placemaking Partners Program and the many events we host at the Jacobs Center with partner organizations throughout the year.
Through our Creative Placemaking Partner Program, a program for which we funded innovative ideas for creative placemaking projects led by local artists and arts organizations with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, we are building a vibrant cultural destination in the Diamond Neighborhoods.
Every Friday in June from 5 – 8 pm
Get a taste of the sounds and flavors of the Diamond every Friday night as the Diamond Business Association (BID) bring this month-long series to the neighborhood. Each week the empty lot located at 5083 Guymon St. will be converted into a happening spot with live music, various food trucks, activities and more. Bring the whole family out for a delicious and entertaining dinner!
