Catalyst is a five-year project with the goal of stimulating growth and sustainability in Anniston's creative economy through the implementation of socially-engaged art and design projects that respond to the challenges of our communities.

 

Catalyst leverages the ideas of citizens, artists, designers, creative thinkers, local and regional arts organizations and community organizations in developing creative projects and initiatives.

 

By the end of the project period (September 2021) Catalyst's aim is that the Arts and Design will...

...offer innovative ways for citizens to become socially-engaged

...generate new economic opportunities for citizens

...be at the center of city planning and design

 

Catalyst is a project of the Anniston Council on the Arts & Humanities, Main Street Anniston, the Alabama State Council on the Arts and additional public and private supporters. Support for its socially-engaged projects is generated through earned income activities, grants, cash and in-kind donations, and strategic partnerships with for-profit businesses. If you are interested in participating in Catalyst contact us today.

Connecting People

We believe local citizens know best how the Arts can affect community life. Catalyst offers opportunities for local citizens to connect with one another as well as with artists and designers, arts organizations, civic groups, business owners, funding partners and elected officials.

Inspiring Places

Increasingly, businesses are locating in cities that offer engaging, creative and animated environments in order to attract talented workers.

 

Catalyst concentrates its efforts in Anniston's urban core, a historically-significant area shared by all citizens. Catalyst's goal is to animate downtown with the Arts to drive economic development.
