IdeasCity New Orleans Residency Program

Deadline January 15, 2019

Website | Application

IdeasCity New Orleans invites makers and thinkers from New Orleans and around the world to join this collaborative week-long studio program to prototype cultural, ecological, and material strategies designed for the 2019 theme of "EVERYDAY FESTIVAL". 

 IdeasCity New Orleans Fellows will work alongside the Propeller Incubator in New Orleans, as well the annual New Orleans Homecoming Project, and the newly re-launched New Orleans African-American Museum to explore the possibility of a festival as a creative platform for environmental justice, new ideas, and urban space. Fellows will be expected to collaborate on a proposal and prototype for a festival related to everyday urbanism—groceries, streetwear, pedicabs, stormwater management, roof maintenance, fish fries, wind energy, incarceration, asphalt, air quality, local plant species, or other topics.
