Learn best practices in preparing applications for Public Art opportunities.

This online webinar is led by Biliana Velkova, City of Richmond Public Art Planner, and uses example artist calls as the basis for this session. Participants will be provided with guidance in preparing applications for Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and Requests for Qualifications (RFQs).

Art At Work is a series of professional development workshops for working artists and creative professionals presented by Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond Public Art Program, City of Richmond Arts Services, and CARFAC BC.

In response to the temporary closure of the Richmond Art Gallery due to the current global health pandemic, RAGA has launched our public programs online to encourage dialogue and connection in the era of physical distancing.
