Great news has come to Dallas, TX this month! By a wide margin, area voters gave approval to Proposition A. This will create the necessary funds to renovate the Convention Center and cornerstone facilities in Fair Park. With 277 acres in the heart of Dallas, Fair Park is one of the most important projects in the Renaissance of the Southern Dallas sector.
"We're going to make it absolutely world-class and it's going to be something people in our city and visitors to our city are going to be able to enjoy for another hundred years."
- Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson
The work in Fair Park is a critical investment in bringing resiliency and revitalization to hundreds of thousands of residents. Numerous organizations have been creating impact in this area for years, including The Walls Project. Since 2019, The Walls Project has worked to bring its programming to the southern Dallas sector. In 2022 alone, The Walls Project has done a series of public art beautification projects, and week-long celebrations such as Juneteenth Fest at Fair Park and So. Lamar with Matthews Southwest, Urban Specialists, RHI management, Dallas Designing Dreams, New Era Management, City of Dallas, Fair Park First, and The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center.
Creating this community-elevating programming is made possible by grant-related funding from valiant partners, such as The Moozie Foundation. The Moozie Foundation, a family foundation created by Caroline Rose Hunt to further the philanthropic efforts of her grandchildren, has been instrumental in the support of The Walls Project in Dallas. Through The Moozie Foundation grant, the Walls was given the opportunity to progress its work in So. Dallas post-pandemic. Now with another $20,000 investment, The Moozie Foundation is advancing the work of Walls in Fair Park to collaborate on catalytic projects.
“There is so much opportunity to revitalize Fair Park. We are excited to be a part of this renaissance that is quickly evolving with the residents and artists of Dallas,”
explains Lynn Fisher, Director of The Moozie Foundation
This generous gift helps expedite our creative placemaking, education, and blight remediation efforts in the Southern Dallas sector and launch our intergenerational technology and creative industry workforce training programs. In addition to soon-to-be-announced projects in Fair Park, The Walls is also producing a series of tech training workshops via its Futures Fund program and advancing the community cleanup work into the new year with MLK Fest 2023 and Juneteenth Fest 2023.
THANK YOU MOOZIE FOUNDATION!!
