Creative Suitland, a partnership with the Revenue Authority of Prince George’s County, Maryland and Joe’s Movement Emporium, is an arts-based, community development strategy to include existing residents and businesses in defining the cultural and creative spirit of greater Suitland area.
In 2018, we focused on broadening community outreach, facilitating partnerships and amplifying the existing arts and cultural scene to determine the future direction for Creative Suitland planning. During the summer, we developed a survey for the Suitland community. The purpose of the survey was to collect data and assess the interests for arts based activities. Through community surveys, partnerships and collaborations with local artists, we were able to connect with the community of Suitland and provide a series of introductory arts-based pop up events suitable for all ages.
