After an historic acquistion of the Armory building in the 2021, the City of Somerville has begun a master planning process to support the space as a City owned arts resource.  

The Arts Council and the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD) seek artists to serve on the Somerville Armory Master Plan Committee. 

The City seeks local artists to fill three (3) seats on this Committee. 

The Committee will convene in the spring of 2022 and will meet regularly until the Armory Master Plan is complete.  The Committee will review feedback received from a variety of sources, including focus groups, public meeting hosted by the City, and other stakeholder engagement events included as part of a comprehensive public engagement process that garners feedback from a broad spectrum of residents, as well as Somerville’s artistic community. 

The City is seeking artists with a diversity of views for membership on the Committee, and desires three members who provide a minimum representation including: 

visual artist; performance artist; artist of color;  female artist. 

If you are interested in serving, please review the full application form and complete by noon (12pm) on April 15, 2022
