beintween.org, is a social + spatial network, improv(is)ing spaces to build community. Our mission is to make [art] do [work]. You may have already seen or experienced our most recent installation, a pop up park featuring swings made out of tires under the Holton Bridge. This time we need your support for a project with much bigger aspirations!
Over the past 6 months, we've developed an extremely ecological + unprecedented, woven geo-textile for a linear park named the artery, with our 'creational trail blazing. Our prototype, matireal, seeks to become the catalyst to stitch communities together along a former rail corridor, which divides black and white neighborhoods in Milwaukee for 2.4 miles.
Please consider a pledge to help back this initiative. It will change Milwaukee. Raising the funds to meet our goal is essential, because it's all or nothing. That said, there are plenty of great incentives to reward your generosity at multiple levels starting at $5. If we reach our goal, we will purchase a shipping container and other hardware, critical to our efforts to matirealize the pilot project, connect the neighborhood of Harambee, and prove our precedent at the artery.
If this is the first time you've heard of beintween, here are a couple of the articles written on our recent efforts:
