Call for Artists and Designers: National CAPACD releases RFP for an AAPI Creative Placemaking and Placekeeping online platform

The National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (National CAPACD) is seeking an artist or designer for the development of an online platform dedicated to Creative Placemaking in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities.

Through the creation of an online platform, we seek to document the stories that have emerged, and make available resources and tools to assist practitioners in other AAPI communities in their efforts to implement equitable, community-centered creative placemaking strategies. It will serve as a space to share information as well as explore difficult questions and common challenges. This online platform must incorporate multiple forms of narrative and media, and must embody the spirit of our collective Vision and Values for Creative Placemaking in AAPI communities. Types of media to be included in the online platform include, but are not limited to, videos, podcasts, graphics, and photography. One example of an online platform that inspires us is http://www.plantingrice.com. We envision the development and launch of this online platform as Phase I of our effort to share resources, and planning is currently underway for future phases that would utilize this tool to engage AAPI communities across the country in further dialogue. Phase I is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and NeighborWorks America and will conclude by June 2021.

Artists and designers with experience in design of websites and other online platforms are highly encouraged to apply. Teams are also encouraged to apply. The application deadline is Monday, July 13, 2020 at 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time and should be submitted to RFP@nationalcapacd.org. All questions should be directed by email to RFP@nationalcapacd.org.
