This might be of interest for artists who partner, or want to engage with, the parks in Flint:

Greetings!

The Planning and Zoning Division is currently drafting an update to the City's Five Year Parks and Recreation Plan. A valued component of this process is YOUR input. Therefore, we hope you will be able to join us at one of our community workshops:

Thursday, November 9, 2017 at Berston Field House 5:30-7:00pm

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at Brennan Senior Center 5:30-7:00pm

This plan is required by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for state grants and it outlines the City's strategies for providing parks and recreation. This plan will align with the highly participatory 2013 Imagine Flint Master Plan’s goals and objectives.

At these workshops we will revise the strategic guiding principles and goals of the proposed Five Year Parks and Recreation Plan. There will also be a "dollar exercise" where you can tell us how to you would like us to "spend” your Park Millage dollars. Through providing your written feedback, ideas, questions; you will help strengthen the draft plan. We value your comments as they will help determine which improvements are most needed in our park system and how the City can best spend our limited millage dollars and staff time.

This important community input will be used to create a draft plan this winter. Following its completion, the draft plan will be made available for public comment and further edits. The revised draft will then be presented in a public hearing before the City of Flint city council officially adopts it early next year.

Please join us and share your thoughts and input concerning Flint's J. Dallas Dort Park System and help guide the City's strategy for the next five years!

For questions, please contact Andrew Fedewa at [email protected] 810-766-7426 x. 3016 or Adam Moore at [email protected]

Hope to see you at one of the workshops!

Thanks,

The Imagine Flint Planning Team

General information

The Ruth Mott Foundation believes in the power of the arts to bring people together to explore and address community issues and to fund creative new ways to do that. Over its ten year history, the Foundation has focused its grant funding in Arts and Culture, Health Promotion and Beautification. A Focus on Community Arts and Culture Community arts and culture offer meaningful and accessible ways for a wide range of Genesee County residents of all ages to take part in creative experiences and to connect with each other and the community. Community arts and culture programs seek to engage residents on issues that matter in their daily lives through education, dialogue, and action. They provide avenues to address serious social issues in productive new ways, give voice to those who are often silent, celebrate our diversity and unite us through a shared sense of community. Funding Creative Programs with Mini Grants Though the Mini-Grant Program, we will fund community arts and culture activities that are led by skilled artists and creative people working in the field, whose practices are rooted in the heart of community life. We seek projects that are initiated, designed and implemented with local residents. We are particularly interested in programs that expand arts and culture learning, that employ arts and culture for community change and that celebrate culture and heritage. The Ruth Mott Foundation defines arts and culture broadly to include all forms of arts and cultural expression. Mini-Grant Program Goals Goals of the Community Arts Mini-Grant Program are: To provide small grants through a streamlined application process and a quick turn-a-round approval process. To encourage new ideas from grass-roots arts and culture practitioners, emerging organizations and creative arts and culture educators, including those who don’t usually apply for foundation grants. To support projects that educate and inform using the inherent power of arts and culture to address community issues. To enable people to create unique arts and cultural experiences that encourage collaboration and strengthen community engagement. To gain a deeper understanding of the support needed by artists and start-up organizations and the early indicators of success.
