A project on 'Digital Equity' with the City of Minneapolis IT Department was one of three projects chosen for the Creative CityMaking Minneapolis (CCM) program.
What is CCM?
Creative CityMaking Minneapolis is a multi-year, arts-based innovation initiative within Minneapolis City government designed to advance City priorities through in-depth collaborations between City departments and highly skilled community artists. Creative CityMaking Minneapolis is a leading-edge program stewarded by Intermedia Arts, the region’s premier multidisciplinary, multicultural arts center, and The Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy program at the City of Minneapolis.(Source)
Artist(s) will be chosen to help the IT Department improve the way they confront the issue of digital equity in the city. They not only develop a project, but enhance a process. The call for artists ends April 24th!
