SAN DIEGO – RFQ – Port of San Diego Performance Program

In RFQ on April 24, 2019 at 3:54 pm

The Port of San Diego’s Waterfront Arts & Activation department produces free community-focused events showcasing a variety of artistic performances around the San Diego Bay. These performances take the form of temporary pop-up artistic explorations as well as larger orchestrated free community events. Performances range from dance, theatre, and music, to new media, contemporary performance art, and interactive artworks. The current curatorial objective is to identify performance groups/artists to add to the Port’s 2019 – 2021 cultural programming. This Call for Artists invites artists and organizations to submit their qualifications for providing cultural performances to take place along the waterfront throughout District tidelands. Application materials will include a statement of intent, budgets, examples of past work and a resume/CV. Selected performance groups/artists will contract with the Port of San Diego on an as-needed basis. Performances will be programmed based on activation needs. An award of a contract is not a guarantee that performance services will be needed.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to artists based in the Counties of Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego

BUDGET: Budgets will range from $500 – $15,000 per project based on each individual performer/performance group, the scale of performance, and specific project needs.

DEADLINE: May 27, 2019

QUESTIONS: Corey Dunlap, Project Manager,
