Staten Island Arts, the local arts council for Richmond County, has issued the Future Culture RFQ for Pilot Projects, an RFQ for two separate Pilot Projects that will connect places and people using arts and culture along Staten Island’s waterfront and the North Shore neighborhoods, including St. George, Tompkinsville and Stapleton.
This RFQ seeks qualified proposers for creative placemaking projects that give a prominent role to local artists and/or communities, enhance livability in the community, and test recommendations established by Future Culture: Connecting Staten Island’s Waterfront, a joint project by Design Trust for Public Space and Staten Island Arts.

The Pilot Projects challenge public and private stakeholders to devise creative solutions to community needs. Through these temporary pilots, we will document and analyze how catalytic placemaking and placekeeping projects can help strengthen the relationships between the cultural sector and the owners and stewards of property.

Artist Fee $15,000
Implementation $30,000-$45,000

This RFQ does not require you to submit a full budget at the time of application. We do ask you to provide a general description of how the $30,000-$45,000 implementation budget will be used. Outline the major project expenses aside from artist fees (i.e. fabrication, permits, materials, equipment rental, contractual services, etc.). Projects should be designed to be scaled to $30,000 in the event that the full budget is not awarded. If your project will exceed the implementation budget, please indicate how you plan to address the gap in funding. Staten Island Arts and the Design Trust for Public Space will not be responsible for providing funding exceeding $45,000 per pilot project.
