The Community Foundation of Louisville is excited to announce a new program to support the working artists in the greater Louisville area. Hadley Creatives is a 6-month learning and engagement experience for local artists who are at a pivotal point in their careers. Through a competitive application process, 15 artists who demonstrate potential and readiness to pursue a career as a working artist will be selected for this professional development program. The Community Foundation is partnering with Creative Capital to develop a curriculum that will help our local artists build their professional practice, cultivate an expanded peer network, and dedicate time for reflection and planning.
Supported by the George and Mary Alice Hadley Fund of the Community Foundation of Louisville, Hadley Creatives is a tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit of Mary Alice Hadley, a true “creative,” and an investment in the local artists who make our community one where people and place thrive. Through Hadley Creatives, the Community Foundation seeks to generate long-term impact for the participating artists while also helping to cultivate and support a thriving arts community.
