Creative City Challenge call for proposals: The Creative City Challenge is a competition for Minnesota-resident architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, artists, students and individuals of all backgrounds to create and install at the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza an artwork, which is an innovative use of the space and acts as a sociable and participatory platform for scheduled and impromptu onsite programs throughout the summer.
This year the competition is challenging teams to engage the broader community to participate in a meaningful way in the design, creation and/or ongoing use of the artwork. We are open to what participation means. Some examples of participatory design projects are included at the end of this call, but they are by no means exhaustive or intended to be prescriptive. We want your ideas about how to engage the public in your work, the Convention Center Plaza, and, ultimately, the City.
For more information about the Creative City Challenge or to submit your proposal, visit the Creative City Challenge website. Entry Deadline: December 1, 2014.
