From Marete Wester, Senior Director of Arts Policy and the National Initiative for Arts & Health in the Military, Americans for the Arts –
Americans for the Arts has announced an exciting RFP opportunity coming up as part of the Creative Forces™: NEA Military Healing Arts Network project. Americans for the Arts serves as the Administrator for Creative Forces.
Americans for the Arts on behalf of Creative Forces™: NEA Military Healing Arts Network is soliciting proposals for the development of conceptual frameworks for the Creative Arts Therapies (art, music, and dance/movement) and the therapeutic writing program within Creative Forces™: NEA Military Healing Arts Network. In an initial step to establish a theoretical basis for its future research activities, Creative Forces will develop conceptual frameworks for understanding better how the individual creative arts therapy disciplines (and therapeutic writing) function within the entire program. This project will avail fully of existing clinical research tools, paradigms, and expertise within individual creative arts therapy disciplines. Thus, the ultimate goal of the conceptual framework process is to support development of research hypotheses, while also informing recommendations for common inputs, activities, outputs, and intended outcomes (short- and long-term) for the Creative Forces Clinical program.
Deadline for electronic submission is no later than 5:00 pm EDT on October 14th, 2018 to email@example.com; or by mail postmarked on or before October 14, 2018 Attn: Creative Forces Project Administrator, 1000 Vermont Avenue, NW, 6th Floor, Washington DC 20005.
