The Riverspace Project


In June of 2014, the City of New London was awarded a creative placemaking grant from ArtPlace America. This grant was written on behalf of the City and four other partners: the Community in Action committee, the NL Arts Alliance, the NL Merchants Group and the NL Economic Development Authority. These five entities came together with a common vision to transform the relationship between downtown New London and the river that runs through it.

Our plan is to train community members to be project leaders of public art projects and engage local residents in the transformation of the Riverspace area in the alleyway north of the dam.
