Purpose/Goals of T²
Treasure Tampa T² will facilitate creative placemaking in Tampa. Through education, collaboration, and funding, Treasure Tampa will increase the quantity of placemaking projects within Tampa. Ultimately projects funded through this initiative will be fun and bring new reasons to why the community treasures Tampa.
We are very excited to announce that the University Area Community Development Corporation (CDC) will be the first to earn a grant of $30,000 as part of the Gobioff Foundation Treasure Tampa (T²) initiative!
The University Area CDC won for its Art in the Park proposal, which will create three to five dynamic art installations in Harvest Hope Park with community residents taking the lead on the creation of the work facilitated by artists. Partnering with University Area CDC , WMNF-FM will produce monthly resident engagement events. WMNF-FM’s Urban Café segment and 83 Degrees Media will include onsite resident interviews that showcase the Prodigy Cultural Arts program and engage in community dialogue about the socio-economic impact and history of arts in the University Area.
