Making it Public in Nebraska


The Nebraska State Arts Council is pleased to offer Making It Public in partnership with Forecast Public art.

This workshop series, comprised of six 90-minute virtual workshop sessions, covers practical and tactical subject matters in facilitating public art, such as stakeholder considerations, community engagement, calls‐for‐artists, equitable selection processes, contracting, and more. Sessions include guest public art professionals, both local and national, adding a depth of knowledge about the field of public art, the profession, and its contemporary issues. An additional pre-recorded video session will be emailed prior to each meeting.

For 6 weeks, we welcome Nebraska individuals who would like to learn how to facilitate, commission, and manage public art projects and programs.

Individuals might be from nonprofit organizations, local and regional arts councils, creative districts, and units of government (town, city, county), or unaffiliated with any of those entities. We also encourage registrations from college students who are interested in public art facilitation and arts administration.

Artists are encouraged to register for weeks 2+3 for topics that are also relevant for individuals who are interested in creating public art or art in public spaces.

Deadline to register is May 5.
