Speaking of artists, the Artists 360 program for local artists has been renewed for another three years, The program was also expanded to include additional grants. Its aim is to identify and elevate the region’s leading artists. The program began in 2018 as a three-year pilot that ultimately provided $342,000 in grants to 60 artists of all disciplines. In total, this next iteration will include $600,000 in funding.
Strap on your bike helmets because Slow Streets NWA is here! Beginning this weekend. Some neighborhood streets throughout our region will be safer to walk, bike, and travel without a vehicle, These routes, which are wider spaces than sidewalks and trails, are designed to be accessible and open to all community members, not just serious cyclists and competitive athletes. With Mother’s Day and Memorial weekend both happening in the month of May, this could be the perfect time to explore our region on your bike.
