The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s president, Chris Daggett recently wrote this about creative placemaking in the state:
Arts can bring a community many benefits, from fostering local pride to creating opportunities for recreation or even mitigating cultural or racial tensions.
But the arts can also serve as a powerful economic engine, bringing needed jobs and dollars into communities.
We agree, and we’re glad to support this important work in New Jersey!
