2023 Call for Placemaking Services


Creating public spaces that people WANT to gather in.

Do you, your organization or group love creating ways for people to gather and share art, food, music, culture, activities, or experiences? We are looking for YOU to create (or reimagine) a NEW experience, space, or event in downtown Moorhead!

The City of Moorhead is issuing a Call for Placemaking Services to manage the creation and implementation of a new or reimagined event(s) and/or public space(s) to entice people to gather and enjoy our community. The approved individual, organization or group will be funded up to $20,000 to bring their project to life.

A strong application would bring a new vision for:

• Creating a new event to revitalize downtown Moorhead
• Reimaging an existing space that could benefit from change
• Enhancing an outdoor space in downtown or creating connections to the Red River
• Bringing people and places together to create an inclusive community

The submissions will be considered on their potential for attracting people to downtown, the river corridor and creating a welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Proposals should fit with goals and initiatives in the Downtown Moorhead Master Plan, Moorhead Arts and Cultural Framework Plan, and Onward Moorhead! Comprehensive Plan.

Please review full details for the 2023 Call for Placemaking Services and email any questions to art@moorheadmn.gov.

If this interests you, please submit your proposal by 10 AM on Monday, April 17, 2023. We hope to hear from you!
