Please support our kickstarter.com campaign for matireal, a new permeable surface that will be a catalyst to diversify Milwaukee.  After one week we are at 15% of our goal; the campaign ends on November 27, and it's all-or-nothing.  We can do this, but we need your support!  Please check out our kickstarter* campaign:

 * the world's largest funding platform for creative projects

 

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.

Keith, do you have an email or phone number I could reach you at? I wanted to chat about the upcoming transition milwaukee meeting where I'm going to be doing a workshop about the transition movement. There will be time set aside at the end for people to talk about their projects. Was hoping you could come. Is there somewhere on this sight that has your contact info? I might be missing it. All the best, Zahner
