Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking proposals from individuals, groups, or organizations 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, promote cross-cultural experiences, build ongoing participation, welcome drop-in participants, and support the Mayor’s Youth and Families Initiative. Parks can allocate a maximum of $8,400 for each of five parks for the season.
The Summer Art in the Park Program takes place at these Parks locations: Othello Playground, Powell Barnett Playground, Little Brook Park, Judkins Playfield, and Maplewood Playfield. The purpose of this program is to provide fun, innovative, curriculum based visual and performing arts.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday, May 6, 2011.
Parks will hold a free Request for Proposals (RFP) Workshop on Tuesday, April 5, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave, S in Seattle. Potential proposers can ask questions and find out more about the process for submitting a proposal in response to the RFP.
