The Town of Frisco has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a five-year arts and culture strategic plan that would express the mission, vision, and path to implementation of arts and culture programming in Frisco. The Town is seeking an arts and culture plan, which would set a course for Frisco’s long-term investment in the arts and would respect the community’s values and vision with an approach that would deepen the sense of place and support economic development.
The project scope would include a comprehensive public process to include creative workshops and public meetings with a focus on engaging diverse participants of all ages and abilities. The scope would also include an inventory of current arts and culture offerings and conditions in Frisco and surrounding communities; an outline of the economic, health, and social impacts of arts and culture programming; a suggested budget to include future funding sources; best practices for a successful arts council; and detailed recommendations for future arts and culture programming.
A virtual meeting for interested parties is scheduled for Friday, February 11, 2022; attendance at the virtual meeting is not required. Questions regarding the RFP are due on February 14, 2022 at 4:00pm, and responses to questions will be provided by 4:00pm on Friday, February 21, 2022 at FriscoRFP.com.
