City of Houston Awards $5 Million to the Creative Community


Houston creative community has been hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic as music venues and art spaces have closed. To help combat some of the financial strain impacting local artists and cultural organizations, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA) distributed $5 million to artists, cultural organizations, music venues and musicians.

SHAPE Community Center, Project Row Houses, Museum Of Fine Arts Houston, Cullen Performance Hall, and others are among the 534 individual creatives/venues awarded.
