Digital Media & Learning
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The Chicago Art Department (CAD) artists' collaborative cultivates new voices, ideas, and practices in contemporary art. With this grant, CAD artists will work with the Learning Labs project and Chicago Hive Learning Network - two key projects of MacArthur's digital media and learning initiative - to develop video and other multimedia content for public audiences, and help build a visual narrative around project activities and ideas. This will help the projects tell their stories to important public audiences, including city officials, funders, educators, parents, and youth, and spread the principles and practices of Connected Learning, the framework for learning that undergirds the digital media and learning work.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Chicago Art Department $150,000 between 2010 and 2013.
