Madison Paints a Sustainable Future
Community Visioning Conversation for smART [sustainability + madison + art] in South Madison
April 11th, 2015
Zion City Community Outreach Center; 1317 Applegate Rd
Performances, Free Food, Open to the Public
What is your vision of a healthy, happy and vibrant Madison?
A few months back, Sustain Dane and DAMA (Dane Arts Murals Arts) partnered together around a county-wide placemaking initiative that creatively weaves together conversation, participatory art-making, and leadership to capture residents' collective vision for wellbeing and create the future community we want.
Art for the Community : By the Community.
Transform Public Spaces : Transform Individual Lives.
This year we'll be working alongside Zion City Community Outreach Center, Centro Hispano, Center for Resilient Cities, and neighbors in the South Madison region. We're really excited for the whole project and to get as many South Madison neighbors and stakeholders involved in the process as possible.
Come join neighbors, businesses, artists, and local organizations on April 11th for a conversation about our future -- resulting in two larger-than-life murals off of Fish Hatchery rd.
Step 1: Neighborhood conversations around wellbeing
Step 2: Neighbors and DAMA transform vision into design of art piece
Step 3: Community gathers to co-create high-quality art with DAMA
Step 4: Neighbors dive into wellbeing through neighborhood workshops and projects
Step 5: Connect initiatives across the city
Join us every step of the way!
smART is a major community-based art initiative designed to engage Madison neighborhoods in envisioning a sustainable, just, and healthy future for our own communities. Our vision is in the next few years any and all neighborhoods in Madison can have a conversation around sustainable futures that results in large participatory public art. Over the last year, we've worked with Darbo-Worthington and hosted conversations Downtown.
