Request For Proposals - SMUSH Gallery
Welcome to SMUSH Gallery's rolling RFP form! We are so glad you're here.

Before you submit, please note:
- SMUSH Gallery seeks enthusiastic proposals for creative and community work within and across disciplines.
- Each proposal is reviewed carefully and will receive a response; your patience is appreciated. If you haven't received a response within two weeks of your submission, please email hello@smushgallery.com.
- Throughout this form, "project" refers to your proposal, whether an event, exhibition, class, workshop, lecture, etc.
- Programmed events may overlap when reasonable. (Ex. a concert may take place while an art exhibit is up.)

We strive to produce a wide range of high quality events and to maintain responsible business practices. While money is not the focus of our work, we acknowledge that our work takes resources. To that end, all projects must further the gallery's financial, as well as programmatic, goals. Accepted projects may take the following forms:
- Fully sponsored projects, which receive space, time, publicity, and collaboration/development/dialog, as needed. Revenue sharing options will be discussed upon acceptance.
- Partially sponsored projects, which receive space, time, publicity, and collaboration/development/dialog, as needed, as part of a rental agreement. Details will be discussed upon acceptance.
- SMUSH is not able to provide funding or financial assistance at this time. Applicants are encouraged to seek grant and other outside funding for their projects; SMUSH will support such fundraising efforts when possible.

Projects that do not align with SMUSH's programmatic goals may take place at SMUSH under a standard rental agreement. Rentals receive space and time, but are not publicized or developed by the gallery, and they may not represent themselves as being presented by SMUSH Gallery. Please visit smushgallery.com/rentals for more information.

... and when in doubt, pitch!

We are currently programming through July 2019.
