Introducing: STOREFRONT FOR STARTER PROJECTS
Under the theme of "Untapped Capital", miLES is curating 4 locations to showcase creative uses of untapped resources during New Museum's Ideas City festival
from May 1 to May 4, we will disclose these storefront locations and themes everyday leading up to the beginning of the festival!
"Storefront for starter projects" will showcase emerging projects that relate to observations and creative making of cities that was initiated by tapping funds from the public. Curated with Kickstarter
, miLES invited participants to share their funding experience and the making-of through panel discussions on three evenings. The projects will be on display at the storefront on May 4th throughout the day.
The event will be a resource for the community to learn about starting and funding creative projects, for creative entrepreneurs and artist to share experiences with each other, and to inspire people with ideas to turn them into actions.
