Glass House Collective believes in the power of arts and culture to strengthen the social and economic development of our neighborhood. Our Art Means Business grant program supports the businesses along our commercial corridor by funding arts based programming and installations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on local businesses and artists. This grant opportunity will fund arts and cultural projects that drive foot traffic to businesses in the Glass Farm neighborhood in East Chattanooga while simultaneously creating paid work for local creatives. The plan will also support the community’s mental and emotional health during COVID-19 by bringing people together through the healing power of the arts.
Art Means Business grants are intended to fund ideas and initiatives for arts programming and installations that will support economic development for Glass Street businesses, provide paid gigs for local artists, and develop creative experiences in the community.
