We are developing a national network of artists, neighbors and emerging leaders invested in transforming neighborhoods from within. Our programs provide resources for process-driven, collaborative, public projects whose outcomes foster meaningful relationships, increase economic opportunities, and empower individuals and communities to lead on their own terms.
CREATIVE INTERVENTIONIST FELLOWSHIP
Our Fellowship Program identifies and catalyzes neighborhood residents to discover their leadership and co-create what they want to see in their communities. The program provides each Fellow with an artist stipend, guides, resources and tools to reimagine their neighborhood with powerful acts of culture and also access to a valuable national network of peers and mentors.
FUNDING TO LOCAL ARTISTS
The League of Creative Interventionists was founded in 2014 by artist Hunter Franks. Franks was carrying out creative interventions in San Francisco and met similar people who wanted to make their neighborhoods and cities more connected and joyous. He started the League as a way to bring those people together and soon people around the country were forming League chapters in their cities. As the League grew, we recognized the need for projects to be resident-led and for those residents to be provided funding, mentorship, and peer support to elevate their work. The League evolved into a non-profit in 2017 and we shifted our focus to providing resources to artists and emerging leaders in their neighborhoods. In 2018, the League welcomed Jonell Logan as our Executive Director to drive forward our vision of a connected network of community catalysts.
