Roswell Arts Fund City of Roswell, GA Request for Proposals

The Opportunity:

Roswell Arts Fund, on behalf of the City of Roswell, Georgia is seeking proposals
from qualified Firms, Consultants or Consultant Teams with specific experience in
feasibility studies for performing arts venues to determine the feasibility of such a
venue for the City of Roswell, Georgia.

The selected consultant will work inconjunction with the Roswell Arts Fund, key City Staff and Leaders, community stakeholders, and the Steering Committee to create a strategic analysis of the feasibility for a state-of-the-art performing arts venue in the City.

Our vision is for a multi-functional space, one that could serve as a venue for quality
entertainment (theatre, music, dance), as well as potentially serve as an event
space, a temporary gallery, and offer a second theater for more intimate, smaller
performances such as storytelling, music performances, or poetry readings for
instance; a facility that will attract community members across generations in
addition to attracting patrons from a large geographic and regional area. We
envision a cafe/restaurant component within the venue as well as the option of
walking to other restaurants in the area and adequate parking is essential.
Currently, the city’s Cultural Arts Center (CAC), located at 950 Forrest Street
Roswell, GA 30075, serves as the home to our resident theatre group, the Georgia
Ensemble Theatre, and as a venue for many special events and recitals throughout
the year.

The Cultural Arts Center is not a modern, appropriately equipped and
designed performance venue but rather, was designed and constructed as a civic
auditorium, to serve as the city’s Municipal Town Center complex consisting of the
CAC, City Hall, and the main branch of the public library. Structurally the Cultural
Arts Center lacks key physical attributes of a first-class performance venue limiting
the scope, quality, and variety of entertainment options. The CAC is owned and
operated by the City of Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs
Department. We do not envision this new venue to be a City owned and operated
property, but more likely, a private, commercial development. Our vision is for a
Performing arts venue that will contribute to the overall strategic objective for the city
of Roswell to become an arts destination.
