Call for Artists
NASHUA ARTS COMMISSION PUBLIC SERVICE VIDEO PROJECT
The Nashua Arts Commission video subcommittee is seeking to engage an artist, or a team of artists, that will work together, to create a 2 – 2 ½ minute video promoting the new Nashua Arts and Culture plan.
The project is to educate the public about the central tenets of the new arts and culture plan that include the benefits of the arts, preservation of key artistic/cultural locations, and why and how the public can and should get involved with the arts. The maximum budget for this project is $3,000.
The goal is to create a 2 – 2 ½ minute video that engages the public through a variety of outlets including social media, websites, Youtube and cable access TV.
The video will become the property of the City of Nashua and the Nashua Arts Commission, along with all rights of reproduction.
Deadline for finished video is March 15, 2023.
