Powder House Community School Project Update

We are very excited to report that we were selected to participate in the interview round for the Powder House Community School RFP and were able to present our ideas and participate in a Q&A session with the Technical Advisory Committee today!

For those of you who are hearing about this for the first time – the City of Somerville released an Request for Proposal (RFP) for development bids on the Powder House Community School (PHCS) at the start of 2015.

We submitted our proposal in mid-March. Eight bids in total were received by the City. The review committee narrowed the pool to 5 bidders, and today all of the finalists had presentation and interview sessions with the review committee.

We are very excited by how our interview session went, and are excited to continue discussions with the City of Somerville.

Here’s a picture of our team getting settled in at the podium before our presentation:

One step closer to our goal of transforming the PHCS into an integrated center for artists and makers, a new nexus for community engagement with the arts, and an incubator for the creative economy!
