Each summer, LAND studio provides free programming to youth and families in Cleveland’s neighborhood parks and public spaces. This annual initiative affords residents the opportunity to engage in the community as they participate in a range of art and entertainment activities like visual arts instruction, theater production, outdoor movies, ice cream socials, and more. Through the presentation of enriching community events, we strengthen social ties among individuals, families, and neighborhoods.
We work directly with residents and stakeholders to develop programing that they would like to see in their communities. These types of programs have included art instruction, self-defense workshops, community festivals, and wellness and exercise programs. It is essential that programming is accessible, welcoming, relevant, and meaningful to the people who live nearby. Over time, activities evolve and expand in each neighborhood to reflect the values of the people that participate.
If you are a resident of the Buckeye-Shaker, Mt. Pleasant, Woodhill, or Larchmere neighborhoods you can apply for a small grant to be able to provide programming in your neighborhood.
