MVT CID Call for Makers
Wednesday June 14, 2023
Calling all creatives! Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVT CID) in Washington, DC is seeking local makers to submit basic qualifying and contact information to express interest in working with MVT CID to vend at our Mobile Retail Kiosk during select FRESHFARM MVT Markets and various other events throughout the year. Through this program we hope to give established and emerging makers – with particular emphasis on featuring artists from our Mount Vernon Triangle community – a platform to promote their business. Therefore, there is no fee to apply or vend. Selected applicants will have the opportunity to work out of our new Mobile Retail Kiosk that was created specifically for makers and includes storage cabinets, expandable countertops, and a backboard perfect to hang jewelry or other items. Our MVT Mobile Retail Kiosk was made possible by the Office of Planning’s Streets for People Grant Program, which funds public space infrastructure enhancements designed to support local business and catalyze economic recovery.
All interested applicants should submit their response through this Google Sheet. We will accept applications on a rolling basis and reach out to makers for specific availability upon selection at least one week prior to any proposed engagement.
