Bringing it together brick by brick
Fundraising for Phase One.
VIAC is currently fundraising for Phase One of our project, which includes developing a strategic master plan, site acquisition and stabilization, and curriculum design.
Funding Received to Develop Strategic Master Plan
We have received $286,000 from the U.S. Department of Interior Office of Insular Affairs to develop our strategic master plan. VIAC will convene a strategic development conference with community and other experts in historic preservation, building arts and crafts, education, curriculum development and other areas to solidify our vision and plan of action.
Site Acquisition and Stabilization
VIAC is finalizing a lease agreement with the Virgin Islands Department of Education which owns the Old Barracks. Once completed, we will obtain funding for site stabilization, asbestos and lead paint abatement and architecture and engineering costs.
As Virgin Islands built heritage is Afro-Danish, VIAC will engage architects and educators from the Virgin Islands, Denmark, Ghana and the United States to design a curriculum for its school.
VIAC is history, culture, education, and economic development coming together to benefit community.
VIAC is a catalyst for the evolution of our towns.
