McKay Grant – RFP

Hey! It’s that time of year again, when the sweethearts exchange chocolate and flowers and begin their planning for the Fremont Solstice Parade!

The Fremont Arts Council will host the 24th Solstice Parade on Saturday, June 16th, 2012—and what a year for radical self-expression. What better way to celebrate the apocalypse, then to create a poignant ensemble, or an outrageous installation at Gas Works Park?

The Fremont Arts Council is providing grants up to $1000 for the support of parade art. Please find the Request For Proposals below. Deadline is 5PM on Monday, March 26th, 2012.

Bring us your wild ideas, your insane impossibilities, and your best recipe for fun.

All information is included here: McKay Grant RFP
