Today’s Americans for the Arts #ShowYourArt2021 theme is Activate a Space! 🎨

If you didn’t know, this summer ArtsFairfax developed the Creative Spaces Toolkit. The toolkit is a roadmap to interim activation and use of vacant buildings and spaces. Its purpose is to help create collaboration between the arts sector, property owners, and government officials.

“The arts are needed to rebuild and heal our community as we emerge from the pandemic.” Artists and arts organizations can help “to not only activate vacant spaces but catalyze the recovery.” - Linda S. Sullivan, President and CEO of ArtsFairfax.

Visit our website to learn more and download the toolkit today! ✍🏼
