EmcArts, with funding from the Kresge Foundation, will be launching Community Innovation Labs in two new communities across the United States in 2016-2017.

These Labs are an intervention designed to help communities use the arts so that stakeholders from different sectors can work together in innovative new ways in response to a specific challenge. Community stakeholders may include local arts organizations, city agencies, community foundations, academic institutions, and community-based organizations.

The Labs’ framework prioritizes four key principles: 1) a focus on building dense, cross-sector networks; 2) a willingness to slow down in order to see systems as a whole; 3) an ability to harvest the unique contributions of artists and cultural workers; and 4) a willingness to let go of linear planning in favor of experimental learning.

Letters of inquiry must be submitted by April 11, 2016.
