GOOD Design Is Growing: Announcing GOOD Ideas for Cities

The next chapter in our GOOD Design program will be funded by an exciting new initiative to drive urban revitalization through the arts nationwide.



At GOOD, we know the power of creative thinkers when it comes to tackling urban problems. Creatives have a unique ability to make big ideas easy to understand, visualize solutions in a way that gets people engaged, and connect with audiences. Three years ago, we created a series of events called GOOD Design to showcase how creatives can solve real problems proposed by urban leaders. And today, we're excited to announce that GOOD and CEOs for Cities will be collaborating on the new chapter of this initiative, GOOD Ideas for Cities, funded in part through a grant from ArtPlace, a new nationwide initiative to drive urban revitalization through the arts.

ArtPlace is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Arts and 11 top foundations—including the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies—that are combining forces to accelerate the work of creatives who are improving their cities. 34 local projects in cities across the country, ranging from a Detroit street that's being converted into a cultural center to a high-tech, socially-focused urban redevelopment project in San Francisco, will share $11.5 million in grants. You can read more about the initiative in The New York Times, and you can even apply to be a part of it: ArtPlace is already looking for its next round of grantees.
