The Arts, Culture, and Transportation (ACT) Fellowship is a new opportunity for professionals to increase their knowledge of the transportation planning and design process, and develop creative placemaking skills to better integrate artistic and cultural practices in transportation projects. With generous funding from the Kresge Foundation, Transportation for America will be providing hands-on, curated learning opportunities to a cohort of approximately 10-15 working professionals from across the United States including transportation engineers, designers, and planners, artists, community organizers, and others working at the intersection of the arts and transportation.
Teams of candidates (at least two, but no more than four for each team) who share a geographic locality will apply. We recommend that your team have a mix of unique or shared experiences in the arts & culture and transportation sectors.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn how you can leverage creative placemaking in transportation projects, gain hands-on technical assistance geared towards addressing your community’s unique challenges, and put in practice the concepts Transportation for America explored in our Creative Placemaking Field Scan.
