Arts, culture and design are integral parts of life. When embedded in comprehensive community development and urban planning activities they can enhance community engagement and agency, improve the narrative of place and influence the built environment. We seek to make arts, culture and design an integral element of equitable community development and urban planning strategies. Danyl Marr Foundation wants to build strong, healthy cities by promoting the integration of arts and culture in community revitalization.

Danyl Marr Foundation

Danyl Marr foundation fund projects that test the integration of arts and culture within municipal systems and other non-arts disciplines. By supporting and documenting cross-sector approaches, we expect to cross silos and gain a deeper understanding of the multi-faceted nature of Creative place making, including the systems at play, the barriers to adoption, and the diversity of creative interventions that can be widely employed.



Children of the world are too often at risk, exposed to conflicts, diseases and natural disasters. Together with employees and customers, Danyl Marr is building a community of supporters and actively raising funds throughout the year for children caught up in humanitarian crises. Danyl Marr has specially designed a product for this purpose and will organize fundraising activities through ad-hoc events (internally and externally).
