We Are City [IMPORT] is a residency program for city-builders: thinkers, creators, do-er’s who are making their city better.
In 2012, we imported “Zoe” William Fitzgerald, a video artist from Brooklyn who created an installation piece for Butler University. See his work by clicking here.
In 2013, We Are City – thanks to the support of Milhaus Development, Central Indiana Community Foundation, the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute, and Indiana Humanities – imported James Reeves and Oliver Blank from Civic Center in New Orleans. On May 3rd, James and Oliver will unveil the Bureau of Manufactured History, an art piece that speaks to Indianapolis’ myth, legend, history, and identity.
The goal of We Are City is to enhance the conversation about city-building and celebrate the people and organizations that are doing it well.
