The mission of Cultural Arts of Waco is to celebrate and promote the community’s diverse artistic and cultural life; develop and enrich its cultural capacity; and champion the economic, social, and educational benefits of the arts in the Greater Waco area and beyond. This grant is seed funding for ArtPlace, a new arts space on Waco’s Elm Ave. The space is designed to provide opportunities for arts education and community development in East Waco, while also serving as a safe and creative meeting place for children and adults in the community. This grant will go toward conceptual design plans for the building.
