PALO ALTO – RFP – Code:ART Urban Intervention

In RFP on December 20, 2016 at 6:19 pm

The City of Palo Alto is inviting artists, designers, geeks, inventors and innovative thinkers working at the intersection of art and technology to submit their concepts for cutting-edge urban interventions, prototypes, or installations that will reimage downtown’s underutilized spaces and encourage dynamic interactivity, discussion and inspiration.

With the support of a National Endowment for the Arts Art Works grant, Code:ART will temporarily reframe Palo Alto as a laboratory for urban interventions and creative placemaking, and will engage the community in a series of events that outwardly reflect the tech community that thrives in Palo Alto and beyond. The new media festival will take place June 1 -3, 2017 and will culminate with the National Day of Civic Hacking June 3rd


BUDGET: Selected finalists will be awarded $4,000 each to implement / install the prototype during the 3-day festival. The budget is inclusive of design, fabrication, installation, and insurance. In addition, the Public Art Program in collaboration with Morelab, an interdisciplinary art studio led by Rebar co-founder Matthew Passmore, will facilitate prototype training and provide implementation coaching to the selected intervention proposal teams.

DEADLINE:  January 1; 11:59 PM. via Dropbox (share a link to your Dropbox folder by emailing
