Interested applicants are invited to an optional workshop for the A LOT Request for Qualifications (RFQ). You will learn more specifically what the Arts Council for Long Beach seeks from qualified candidates which includes going step by step through the RFQ (located here).
We will also go over the goals of the NEA “Our Town” grants nationwide and the concept of creative placemaking related to Long Beach and the RFQ.
About the NEA "Our Town" and A LOT Initiative:
The Arts Council for Long Beach seeks qualified performers, artists, artist groups and organizations capable and committed to creating performance-based artwork by activating vacant lots, buildings and other non-traditional locations in Long Beach neighborhoods. We seek qualified community partners committed to local collaboration while engaging residents in the arts closer to where they live. These local dance, music, theatre, visual art and spoken word performances will be offered free to the public by Long Beach-based artists and organizations in neighborhood venues that traditionally have been underserved by arts events. This initiative is intended to increase access to the arts and broaden the audience to include both the intentional viewer and the casual passer-by.
