Arts and Humanities Council and DEP Team Up to Offer Grants for Art Relating to the Environment

The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC), in collaboration with the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), is seeking Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) for three art projects relating to the future of the environment. The deadline to submit proposals for each program is Friday, Nov. 8.

AHCMC and DEP are calling on artists and community organizations to help facilitate the collective reflection about the state of the environment, particularly as it relates to climate change, waste reduction, and water quality.

They are sponsoring three grants for artists to develop temporary artworks that engage the community around the issue of climate change.

To be eligible for consideration, artists must live and/or work in Montgomery County. Artists will also be required to apply for the grant in collaboration with a non-profit organization or public entity, in order to demonstrate community support and volunteer capacity.

Details on the RFQ is available at creativemoco.com.
