Spartanburg, South Carolina
The NEA grant will support an arts and cultural plan for Northside, a 350-acre neighborhood undergoing redevelopment in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Engagement and cultural planning activities with artists and arts organizations will complement other planning efforts, including a recently awarded U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development CHOICE Neighborhood Planning Grant, to ensure that arts planning is embedded in the redevelopment process for the neighborhood.
Partners include HUB-BUB, Chapman Cultural Center, Mary Black Foundation, Northside Leadership Council, and City of Spartanburg. The plan will target Northside residents where the median family income is $16,290, less than half of what residents earn nationwide. The population of Spartanburg is 37,334.
