South End Charlotte to get artistic additions

- People are coming together to put a creative touch to South End.

Historic South End offered micro-grants to people with interesting ideas to improve the area. The grant winners are excited to get started.

There are six winners each offering something unique to the neighborhood.

"We really looked for projects that sought to build community in South End, to offer a place for dialog and for people to find the unexpected,” said Adam Rhew, Charlotte City Partners.

This was the first time Historic South End offered micro grants like this.

"We capped the limit at $1,000 because we like to say real creativity begins when you take a zero off your budget,” said Varian Shrum, Community Engagement Consultant.

The grant winners plan to implement their ideas this summer.

Historic South End is accepting applications for another round of grants. The deadline is June 15.
