We know that towns, cities, counties, and districts are using arts and culture to create and shape vibrant communities, and we want to share these stories and experiences on

Please use one of the below writing prompts to spark your storytelling, or write about anything else that your organization has done that makes you proud or thoughtful about building creative communities.

Blogs are due on the date you select. ELGL will publish for you with attribution and recognition of your contributions. 

Writing prompts:

  1. What was the really difficult question or challenge that arts and culture helped to address?

  2. How on a (major utility project, engagement process, etc) were you able to integrate arts and cultural strategies?

  3.  “I used to think this work was [this], but now I know that it’s [this…]” (ex: I used to think this work was about public art, now I know it is about community engagement)

  4. How did you convince your mayor or city manager to work on an arts and culture project?

  5. What was the story of the first time your department hired an arts partner(s) to help them with a project (maybe after working with a lot of creative approaches they did on their own)?
