ArtPlace Grant for Memphis’ Soulsville Revitalization

A $678,195 grant from a Chicago group called ArtPlace will give a plan to revitalize the Soulsville neighborhood in Memphis a major lift.

Community LIFT, an economic and community development organization, is driving the first phase of the revitalization in partnership with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, which plans to hold classical, pops and Opus One concerts in the neighborhood. The MSO also will establish a regular presence there.

The Soulsville project also includes transforming the former home of bluesman Memphis Slim and a nearby warehouse into a new arts center called “Memphis Slim’s Collaboratory.”

ArtPlace is a new national collaboration of 11 major national and regional foundations, six of the nation’s largest banks, and eight federal agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts.
