The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded East Somerville Main Streets, in conjunction with the Somerville Arts Council, a grant to fund a placemaking initiative for East Somerville during 2014 and 2015. The initiative, called “This is East” will celebrate, maintain and promote East Somerville’s identity at this time of change for the neighborhood. This event is only one piece of a much larger placemaking initiative that includes video stories, other events and more.
