CreateHere is a nonprofit; a group of residents and new recruits working for arts, economic, and cultural development in the urban core. We put creative processes to work and connect locals around pressing issues, including safety, education, jobs, and talent retention. Our projects include a leadership development fellowship, a small business planning course, a grants program for creatives, and Stand, the world’s largest community visioning effort.
What inspires our work? A belief that place-making and connectivity are the source of innovation. Chattanooga is full of people with ideas, passions, and skills bigger and more diverse than our own. We work to connect, to support, and to build.
