DeanwoodxDesign 2012 Vendor Application & Agreement
DeanwoodxDesign (DxD) is a creative placemaking project sponsored by ArtPlace and the DC Office of Planning (OP). ArtPlace, a new private-public collaboration, is an initiative of eleven of America’s top foundations working in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts and seven federal agencies. ArtPlace’s aim is to drive revitalization across the country by putting the arts at the center of economic development. Each project supported by ArtPlace has been selected for developing a new model of helping towns and cities thrive by strategically integrating artists and arts organizations into key local efforts in transportation, housing, community development, job creation, and more.
OP received a grant from ArtPlace to promote Arts and Culture Temporiums in emerging creative neighborhoods in the District, where vacant and/or underutilized storefronts and empty lots would be transformed into an artist showcase/village for three to six month periods.
Under this grant, the Deanwood Arts and Culture Temporium will provide a unique opportunity for artists to showcase their work to residents and visitors as part of a nationally profiled project.
DeanwoodxDesign seeks to support creative entrepreneurs and provide residents with access to unique handmade arts and cultural activities. As part of this project, artists and crafters are invited to sell their products at DxD special events taking place in July 14, 2012 through October 31, 2012.
