Weave-A-Dream (WAD) is a flexible project-based program that aims to encourage small and emerging organizations and creative individuals to propose specific, innovative programming—programming that strengthens, diversifies, and expands Savannah’s creative sector.
The Cultural Affairs Commission’s WAD Panel seeks proposals that reestablish and preserve vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods and/or present cultural and art projects designed specifically for youth. Projects should engage individuals who have limited access to creative programs and should reach communities across all Aldermanic districts.
Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel who consider the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy and plan for assessing the project’s success. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must provide matching funds as outlined in the Guidelines below. The maximum amount that can be requested is $5,000 (with a one-to-one match) and proposed projects must be produced within the City of Savannah’s corporate limits.
