Competing with 80 ventures focusing on social issues, ArtPark was chosen along with four other projects to receive part of the $240,000 set aside by FPCs Project Flourish initiative.
In March, ArtPark Studios received its initial grant to provide free summer arts programming to low income children in Houston. Plans for Summer 2018 include bringing art instruction and community arts projects to The Nehemiah Center and HISD's Carrillo Elementary.
"You can think of Project Flourish as 'Shark Tank' meets a church, where we've set aside a pool of funding to invest in new gospel-minded ventures seeking good for the city and the world" says Austin Hermann, FPC Director of Ministry Empowerment and Project Flourish Program Director."
