Kindred Cities 2

Fifty-six grant applications were submitted, 14 grants were awarded, and over 186 people participated as workshop judges. Awarded projects included a makerspace, art park, community gardens and apiary, a children’s activity station, a senior art program, and more.

In Europe, creative communities are asking how they can get involved with the escalating refugee crisis. One of the grant winners, “Love without Borders” by Kayra Martinez, provides a platform for refugee children and adults to address trauma through art workshops and gatherings. This provides a critical and often overlooked service of cultural relief activities, which aligns with the BWB approach of filling the gaps where traditional societal institutions are failing.
