What is ArtsTank?

ArtsTank (think Sharktank!), a new program of SJCA, is competition designed to encourage creative placemaking in an effort to develop sustainable, prosperous, equitable, inclusive, and resilient places in South Jersey.

Municipalities will create proposals using arts, history, and/or culture to engage their communities in addressing a local challenge.  Examples of local challenges might include bringing people downtown at night, calming traffic, adding vitality to vacant storefronts, transforming vacant spaces, bringing diverse groups together, and instilling pride to spur local investment.

Through competitive presentations to creative placemaking “sharks,” or experts, the audience will be able to learn best practices in the field of creative placemaking.  The audience will include artists and cultural leaders as well as all who are invested in strengthening communities. 

SJCA isn't the only organization interested in championing creative placemaking. We have several strong partners helping to facilitate and support ArtsTank! Sustainable Jersey is offering Using Your Creative Assets action points for participating municipalities that are following the Arts and Creative Culture Action track. The National Consortium of Creative Placemaking will coach the five finalists who will be competing for the $5,000 prize made possible through OceanFirst FoundationSJCA will also collaborate with the NJ State League of Municipalities, NJ Chapter of the American Planning Association, and Main Street New Jersey to promote ArtsTank.
