For its Cross-Cultural Center without Walls, the City of Bellevue is seeking proposals from local organizations to host events or workshops that bring people together around shared intercultural experiences.
These experiences will be designed around active intercultural engagement, learning and exchange, and will travel to different locations around the city. The intent is to create interactions between people and groups from different racial, ethnic, cultural and other backgrounds.
The city launched the Cross-Cultural Center without Walls project last year to help unite Bellevue's diverse residents. At meetings last fall, residents shared their visions for the project.
Organizations are invited to gather more information and submit proposals online by Friday, March 8, on the Cross-Cultural Center page. People can also sign up to receive email or text alerts for updates about the project.
Starting in April and May, the city will contract with successful organizations to host cross-cultural events and workshops in locations across Bellevue. This pilot project will continue through May 2025.
