We encourage ideas not listed above to be submitted for consideration. Activate will provide financial support per activation or performance series. Past financial support ranged between $100 - $250 per activation. Activate will also assist with marketing efforts and city approval coordination. Partners will be responsible for additional fundraising, if needed, event coordination, marketing and audience development. All proposed activations must be completed by September 1, 2018. Submissions are evaluated on an ongoing basis throughout the year and are reviewed by a committee of Activate! programmers. Due to the volume of submissions, please allow 2 weeks from the date of your submission for a decision.

We look forward to working with you!
