Rapid City, SD — In recognition of being selected to the 2015 Community Creativity Cohort
The Big Idea
First People’s Fund honors and supports the Collective Spirit of First Peoples artists and culture bearers. Through fellowship programs, entrepreneurial and professional development training, and place-based work that foster supportive living and working environments for artists, the Fund builds the capacity of Native artists to be economically strong and to use their art to achieve social change. These activities also help the broader community recognize that building creative economies is a strong strategy for economic and community development in Native communities.
