Olympia looking for Armory Creative Campus anchor partners


Olympia announced the opening of the request for qualifications (RFQ) for Anchor Partners at the Armory Creative Campus, an initiative to foster community arts education and training.

According to the city’s statement, to enrich the cultural and educational landscape of Olympia, the city is actively seeking community arts non-profit organizations, referred to as "Anchor Partners," with a proven track record in community arts education and training.

These organizations will play a pivotal role in developing the Armory Creative Campus Building by relocating their operations to the site.

Olympia is offering Anchor Partners stable and affordable spaces, enabling them to pursue their mission of providing accessible art education, skills development, equipment, and resources for community development at an affordable rate.

The RFQ is now available for interested non-profit organizations in the community arts sector, and it can be accessed on the Armory Engage Page and the City's RFP and RFQ website.

To learn more about the Armory Creative Campus project and its broader vision, community members may visit the Armory Engage Page and explore the detailed Concept Plan.

The application process for potential Anchor Partners will be conducted through Submittable, a user-friendly platform that offers a seamless experience for applicants.

If you are new to Submittable, you can access helpful links and resources on the Armory Engage Page and in the RFQ documentation.

For those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the Anchor Partnership opportunity, a Submission Conference is scheduled at the Olympia Armory on November 15 at 3 p.m.

This event is designed to provide valuable insights and answer prospective applicants' questions.

If you require additional information or have specific inquiries, you can send your requests for clarification via email.

The City will accept these requests through December 4th and address them through an Addendum on December 8th.
