Buttercup Park Wins $1,000 Grant to "Pollinate Peace"

Congratulations to Buttercup Park Advisory Council, who were awarded a $1,000 grant by The Chicago Community Trust and Goodcity Chicago. The Acting Up awards are cash prizes to help Chicago-area residents with creative ideas take action to make their communities safer, stronger and more dynamic.

There were 71 grants awarded to various community groups who literally brought them to the table for discussion during the recent On The Table events held throughout the city.

BPAC's idea for "pollinating peace" is an art installation that is explained in their application video, above. The Bees of Buttercup Park Uptown project will work with youth in the community to create and display at least 200 images of bees to pollinate peace with inspiring messages.
