Joanna Sheehan Bell, arts and culture director:


The City of Fayetteville invites artists of all kinds to implement an activation, class, performance or installation in the Lower Ramble during the months September, October, November and/or December. The activation should occur over most of a four-hour period or present an equivalent or greater display period of passive activation. A passive activation or installation must not extend longer than 45 days.
The goal is to add artistic activations throughout the Lower Ramble that engage a diverse public audience with locations in the Lower Ramble park. 


The theme is open, but the content must be appropriate for the fall season outdoors and for all members of the public.

We will accept submissions from all disciplines, but are particularly interested in funding projects in the categories below. Note: the application period has closed for 2022.
