Brief Description

Tucson Water is issuing an open RFQ for artists and cultural contributors who, based on artistic achievement and an understanding of the community, can lead the development of new cultural strategies for improving community engagement and building public trust around the topic of water. The selected applicant (SA) will utilize their knowledge and practice of art, culture, and creativity to work with a small team within Tucson Water’s Public Information and Conservation Office to create and implement a place-based community relationship building project designed to build agency and equity among partners and stakeholders.

For millennia, water has played a central role in the history and identity of people in our region. This connection is particularly rich among communities in what is now Tucson’s near west and south sides, home to the Santa Cruz River, the region’s first human settlement at Cuk Son, and the earliest instances of irrigated agriculture in North America.
