Seattle Parks seeks qualified providers for Summer Arts in the Park Program

Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking individuals, groups, or organizations who best demonstrate their ability to provide culturally relevant, safe, and reliable programs to the community through the Summer Art in the Park Program.

This program is designed to offer elements of academic alignment to help reduce summer learning loss; build self esteem and self efficacy; promote cross-cultural experiences; build ongoing participation; welcome drop ins; and support the Mayor’s Youth and Families Initiative.  Parks has a budget of $8,400 for each park for the season. 

The Summer Art in the Park Program takes place at the following Parks and Recreation locations: Othello Playground, Lakeridge Playground, Judkins Park, and Maple Wood Playfield. The focus of this program is to provide fun, innovative, curriculum based visual and performing arts that will have a positive impact on the children, families, early childhood education facilities, and community centers of Seattle. 

The 2012 Summer Art in the Park Request for Proposals (RFP) is available online at http://www.seattle.gov/parks/partnerships/rfp.htm.

The deadline for Parks to receive the RFP is Friday, May 18, 2012.

Parks hosts free workshop for potential providers

Parks will host a free RFP Workshop on Monday, May 7, from 6:00 – 7 p.m. at Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave S in Seattle. Learn how to complete the Summer Art in the Park Request for Proposal (RFP). This is an opportunity for providers to ask questions and get information about the process.
