WEST HOLLYWOOD – RFP – Arts Festival Feasibility Study

In RFP on April 2, 2019 at 6:32 pm

The City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to provide analysis regarding the feasibility of an arts festival. In 2017, the West Hollywood City Council approved WeHo Arts: The Plan, a community-based cultural plan as a result of an iterative 18-month process that included contributions from over 1,700 individuals. The Plan is structured by its 5 principles (Space, Engagement, Support, Visibility, and Experimentation) and 20 recommendations. These provide the framework to organize, develop, and sustain the work of the City of West Hollywood’s arts and culture programs over the next 5+ years.

During the community outreach process for The Plan some community members expressed an interest for the City to host a large-scale community arts festival where groups and individuals can create, present, and engage in work around a particular theme. The recommendation has been included in The Plan under the principle Engagement which acknowledges that art has the capacity to bring people together and create community; the arts should be viewed as a resource and a vehicle for people to understand the City’s values.

The City anticipates the final work product will be a report with qualitative responses from the community and quantitative analysis and tables to assess the potential success, needs and funding for an Arts Festival to coincide and align with WeHo Arts: The Plan, a community-based cultural plan.

ELIGIBILITY: Qualified consultants (individuals, teams, or firms) must have at least 5 years of professional experience and expertise with similar projects. Prior experience working and coordinating with a municipality or public agency is preferred but not required.
