We want you!
Downtown Van is a place where everyone can thrive, and we want you to be a part of the experience. Our Placemaking + Public Spaces team collaborates with local organizations, community groups, and creative individuals to animate public spaces and add vibrancy to the downtown core.
Our Public Space Vibrancy Grant will give creatives the opportunity to bring their ideas to life. With $2500, you can do whatever you want, within reason, to help enhance Downtown Van’s public spaces. Proposals can include anything! Think art installations, dance performances, fitness classes, educational experiences, beautification, or craft markets. The possibilities are endless.
Enhance the vibrancy of your community by creating a welcoming and engaging environment that encourages social interaction and public enjoyment. All are welcome to apply. Priority will go to those from marginalized groups and those facing barriers. Applications will be accepted from March 1 to April 28, 2023.
