PLACE BASED INITIATIVES
The Wilmington Alliance’s creative placemaking work inside the city’s West Center City neighborhood seeks to harness the many powers of the arts to generate real community engagement, inspired public spaces, and genuine civic pride.
By giving space and support to creative entrepreneurs – whether they be artists, musicians, designers, tech innovators, makers or manufacturers – the Wilmington Alliance seeks to create opportunities for all residents.
This revitalization strategy has transformed vacant lots to green spaces, brought high quality art to city streets, and recruited a regionally known maker space to invest in Wilmington.
Our partners in this work are not just creative professionals, but residents, community organizers and small-business owners, allied with the largest corporations in the state, all of whom infuse creativity into everything they do to make our neighborhoods socially cohesive, economically stable, resilient and thriving.
