Kickstarter has been invited to particpate in the Ideas City StreetFest. And what exactly is IDEAS CITY?
IDEAS CITY explores the future of cities around the globe with the belief that arts and culture are essential to the vitality of urban centers, making them better places to live, work, and play. Founded by the New Museum in 2011, IDEAS CITY is a major collaborative initiative between hundreds of arts, education, and community organizations. This year’s theme is Untapped Capital, with participants focused on resources that are under-recognized or underutilized in our cities.
IDEAS CITY is a biennial Festival in New York City of conferences, workshops, an innovative StreetFest around the Bowery, and more than one hundred independent projects and public events that are forums for exchanging ideas, proposing solutions, and accelerating creativity. Additional Global Conferences are organized annually in key urban centers around the world to identify urgent issues.
Kickstarter is incorporating some of their project creators. They are calling it Kickstarter and the Creative City. The list of projects include:
The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 4th.
