GOOD Ideas For New Orleans
April 26, 2012
AIGA New Orleans is proud to present GOOD Ideas for New Orleans, a program that taps creative problem-solvers to tackle real challenges proposed by civic leaders. Produced in partnership with Neighborland and GOOD, the program is recruiting creatives from across New Orleans to participate. As a collaborator, you’ll work together to create a project that addresses an important issue in our city. The project can by anything that brings the ideas a step closer to reality—a print design, public art, a physical installation or pop-up event, or a simple web tool. Neighborland will provide $500 to bring each project to life.
GOOD Ideas for New Orleans will focus the creative energy of New Orleanians on four challenges:
1. Making bike transportation easier and safer.
2. Bringing more food trucks to New Orleans.
3. Beautifying intersections to improve safety and foster neighborhood pride.
4. Educating people about growing, buying, and cooking healthy local foods.
In May, we’ll host a kick-off meeting to pair collaborators with community leaders. It will be a fun way to meet some of the brightest people in town, and agree on how to work together over the next two months.
On Thursday, July 12th, your team will present your work to an audience of citizens, creatives, and civic leaders, at an event hosted by GOOD Ideas for Cities. Your work will be featured nationally through GOOD and Neighborland.
Register here by Thursday, May 10th and you’ll get information about when and where the kickoff event will take place. If you can’t make it to the kickoff event, you can still participate, just sign up and we’ll keep you posted on how to stay involved!
