Community Vibrancy



Northern Kentucky is a region where people from all backgrounds feel included, connected and welcome. By being intentional about the story we tell through public art and the use of space, the region can write a fresh chapter about the people who call Northern Kentucky home — now and in the future. Utilizing creative place-making will not only ensure a vibrant, ever-evolving region but will also contribute to a more robust economy, since many jobs are supported by the arts.

Skyward's goal for the next five years is to develop a public space that brings Northern Kentucky community members together to interact and connect in a sustainable, healthy and inclusive setting; utilize public art and projects as a distinctive feature of our region; and implement a pre-development fund to accelerate redevelopment in the urban core.
