4Culture + aLIVe: a Low-Impact Vehicle exploration - call for ideas

This might be of interest to some of you from the Pacific Northwest...

4Culture is seeking ideas from artists and artist teams, architects, landscape architects, designers of all types, engineers, tinkerers and community members residing in WA, OR, CA and BC that will inspire and engage the broader community in a conversation about transportation.

Currently, our transportation system is designed around 40 ton trucks, but what if we were to design around the human body instead? A bicycle is a low-impact vehicle.

What else can be imagined?

Selected project ideas will be funded and exhibited in a variety of ways, depending upon medium and context.

This is a great opportunity for people working across disciplines to explore how the arts can enhance existing systems and stimulate public conversations about energy, livability and design.

Citizens from all backgrounds are encouraged to submit ideas for everything from poetry to prototypes.

This project is produced in collaboration with artist Cheryl dos Remédios and Great City.

Deadline: January 25, 2010
Budget: varies by idea or project
