The CNI area has so much to celebrate, including the people, businesses and cultural assets that call it home. We’re highlighting these unique assets through a talent search called HERE!
HERE!, launched in August by MKE <-> LAX, is a talent search designed to support the production of a creative placemaking plan to stimulate long-term art, civic engagement and cultural leadership throughout the CNI area.
In September, artists will be holding pop-ups throughout the CNI area and generating videos highlighting local talent. Maybe you’ve already seen the crew out at Havenwoods State Forest, National Night Out, Collier Creations, Richard Kluge Elementary School, and McGovern Park. The videos captured at pop-ups will be screened at neighborhood gatherings and through spontaneous street side engagement. Check out this video below of artist Adam Carr introducing the project:
Do you have a talent to share? CNI residents and workers, as well as others connected to the area are encouraged to make and post media of their own creation, using the hashtag #HERECNI. Check out HERE! on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! You can also contact Paul Williams at Paul.Williams@hacm.org or visit www.mke-cni.org.
