From time to time, the City of West Hollywood requires experienced and professional consulting support for its active arts and culture program. The City is currently gathering qualifications from interested arts consultants to establish a pool of individuals who could provide such services to the City on an as-needed basis.
Examples of needed consulting services include:
Event/Production coordination (curation, logistics, calendaring/scheduling, contracting, volunteer coordination, event set-up coordination, event management and execution, artist relations, event promotion)
Organizational development and/or technical assistance for small budget arts organizations and/or individual artists (board development, marketing, social media strategies, grant writing)
Public art coordination (project management, curation, collection management, and evaluation)
Public Relations (press releases, press events, social media management/strategies, and event promotion)
Researcher (data analysis, evaluation, report writing)
The Request for Qualifications is open to experienced and professional arts consultants who reside in the Los Angeles region.
SCHEDULE + BUDGET
Should prospective consultants be contacted for services, the City would issue a contract for services with a defined scope of work. The consultant would also be required to have and maintain general liability and auto insurance for the contract period to meet the minimum requirements established by the City. A copy of the standard agreement for services can be referenced here:
City of West Hollywood Arts Division Staff will convene to review submissions through this request for qualifications at a minimum of two times a year (February and August) and as needed when projects arrise.
City of West Hollywood
The City of West Hollywood, known as the “Creative City,” was incorporated in 1984. It is 1.9 square miles in area and is bounded by Beverly Hills to the west, Hollywood to the east, and Los Angeles to the north and south. The City is home to a young, diverse and vibrant community. Its progressive spirit and creativity has put it as the forefront of culture, fashion, hospitality, entertainment and design. Its variety of residential neighborhoods, commercial districts and public amenities has made it one of the most desirable places to live, work and visit in Southern California. The City’s main industries are hospitality (hotels, restaurants, nightclubs), entertainment (production, post production and related uses) and arts and design (fashion, furniture and art galleries). Its business community is a reflection of the City’s artistic richness and support of individuality, diversity and creativity. It is home to the Sunset Strip, Pacific Design Center and West Hollywood Design District.
West Hollywood is known for its progressive public policies and sensitivity to LGBTQ, civil and human rights issues. The City administers extensive support for its seniors, youth and residents living with HIV and/or AIDS through its robust social services programs.
