keep creativity blooming in baltimore
Tue Mar 30

As Spring transforms our city, you can be transformed by the power of art! Even in the midst of a pandemic, Creative Alliance has forged ahead to celebrate diverse communities, inspire future artists, and support creative expression in Baltimore! 

Please consider helping us reach our spring fundraising goal of $30,000. Your gift will support our hardworking staff, essential operations as we prepare to reopen, and our ongoing innovative programs.

Creative Alliance staff came together in mid-March of 2020 and created a program to ensure that performance happened, and happened safely, in an environment where live performance seemed impossible. By the time the final Sidewalk Serenades note rung out, the program had placed 412 concerts on all corners of Baltimore and put over $65,000 back into the hand of the artists. This program created some real Baltimore magic thanks to you, the Baltimore community. The Serenades became a model for safe, equitable arts engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cities all over the world were envious of how Baltimore came together to support its working performers. We know...because they called! And we shared how to start the program for themselves.

After nine years of service furthering the Creative Alliance’s mission, Gina Caruso has resigned as the organization’s Executive Director to pursue other opportunities.  

The Creative Alliance has been fortunate to have Gina at the helm during an important period in our history—the transition from the leadership of our esteemed founder Margaret Footner; the programmatic planning and successful fundraising for our expanded space, the Creativity Center; and the more recent challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gina has been integral to the Creative Alliance’s many successes during her tenure and leaves the organization on firm ground both artistically and financially.

As 2020 comes to a close and we reflect on Creative Alliance’s 25th anniversary, we are certain of one thing: our gratitude for your enduring support. 

For two and half decades, the generous contributions and gifts from our members have helped us to bring Baltimore residents, families, and children an abundance of high quality free arts programs.

You have also helped us to re-ignite Highlandtown, strengthen our community through partnerships with other non-profits, and offered us the extra assistance we need each year to bring outstanding enrichment programs to Baltimore children who attend schools that don’t have funding for the arts.
