Invitation to Bid – Request for Expressions of Interest

The City of Bridgeport and the Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) are calling artists and makers to Downtown Bridgeport. We invite you to share your skill, your imagination, and your inspiration to help transform the city’s Downtown into a vibrant center of community activity.

Thanks to our City of Bridgeport partners, there are five specific public spaces identified for activation concepts, and we are open to ideas of how to activate other sites that stand out.

Call us on (203) 908-3622 or send an email here. We will be hosting an information session and walk of the various sites on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
