Two Civic Projects I’m Working On

Worth noting that earlier this year, I launched 100 Good Folks, which aims to entice 100 people to move to Bloomington, IN and bring their ideas and passion. It’s an idea I borrowed from Boulder.us from back in 2006 where that community had folks coalescing around ┬ábringing people to town though they didn’t have to really sell it that hard.

The other is Design of the City, an initiative where a group of designers work with civic leaders to redesign communities. This has nothing to do with art & culture and everything to do with mundane things like policy and how services in communities work. Using service design techniques and frameworks, we’re convinced we can make a big impression and affect change in ┬ácommunities across the country.
