Creative Life in the Gateway Arts District
Community members, artists, and arts/design organizations: If you are considering submitting a proposal for the Art Lives Here Creative Placemaking Project, we invite you to join us December 10th from 7 – 9 pm at Hyattsville Busboys and Poets for a proposal workshop.
Creative Placemaking Projects are intended to improve neighborhood quality of life; encourage creative activity; foster strong community identity and a sense of place; or contribute to a local economy. Projects may include arts engagement, performances, installations, pop-ups, exhibits, or other creative endeavors.
Workshop facilitators Rhonda Dallas of Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council, Margaret Boozer of Red Dirt Studio, Barbara Johnson of Art Works Now and Anne L’Ecuyer of the Arts Management Faculty at American University will team up to help brainstorm, answer questions and problem- solve application issues for those interested in submitting a Creative Placemaking proposal (application deadline January 6, 2014).
We will address a range of topics including developing concepts, addressing technical concerns, finding resources, planning for engagement, collaborating, and employing best practices for a competitive application.
The workshop will begin with a short presentation on previous successful projects and proposals, followed by breakout sessions for discussion of individual attendees’ ideas and proposals, culminating in a group wrap-up.
We highly recommend that you attend this workshop if you are considering submitting an Art Lives Here Creative Placemaking Proposal. Workshop leaders have had experience in both submitting proposals and reviewing them. Bring your ideas!
This workshop is free and open to the public.
