The Sammamish Arts Commission in cooperation with the Sammamish City Council are seeking artists, who will design and create an art piece for one of Sammamish Community Parks. The Commission is approaching the theme “Celebrating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” where Diversity means a mix of different identities and cultures, Equity to acknowledge that we do not always start on a level playing field, and Inclusion to acknowledge individual voices and power. “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” is a priority to the city.
City of Sammamish's Proclamation Reaffirming Principles and Values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
“As your city government, our role is to bring people together and not divide them. Our job is to be welcoming of all people and all ideas in recognition that we truly are stronger and smarter together. We need to recognize certain essential principles and conduct our government and hopefully our lives consistent with those principles. “ https://connect.sammamish.us/equity-diversity-inclusion
Commission hopes the artwork feels welcoming and inclusive for different identities and cultures to enjoy and experience the artwork in their own way. The goal is to offer a vision of how DEI can evolve and provide a better, more equitable and inclusive future.
Proposals are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, 2022. The Request for Proposals can be found below.
