Join the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) staff to learn how to use the free resource of CreativeGround to promote your work, demonstrate the resilience of your creative community, and support you or your organization’s application for NEFA grant opportunities.
NEFA invests in artists and communities and fosters equitable access to the arts, enriching the cultural landscape in New England and the nation. CreativeGround, NEFA's free online cultural directory, spotlights the creative people and places at work in New England: cultural nonprofits like libraries and theaters, creative businesses like recording studios and design agencies, and artists of all disciplines such as performing arts, visual arts, and crafts. Why? To connect them with each other and with you. Because resilient neighborhoods go hand-in-hand with a vibrant creative sector.
