$5,000 in Grants for November’s 24 Hour City Project
The 24 Hour City Project is back. And, did we mention that we have $5,000 in grants to give away?!
Inspired by the National Building Museum’s Intelligent Cities initiative, the 24 Hour City Project encourages participants to explore the intersection of the built environment, data, the arts, and information technology. All projects must have a physical and digital component and will be placed on display at the Atlas Theater during the closing event for Digital Capital Week on 11/11/11. To give a sense of these projects, see the winning projects from our June event here.

The goals for the 24 Hour City Project are to:
● Leverage technology and data to reveal hidden relationships between our physical and digital worlds, and impact the way we interact with our environments and each other;
● Focus on citizen-generated services to redefine the relationship between citizens and government;
● Accelerate the transfer of ideas between entrepreneurs and urban change agents;
● Generate useful data so that we can make more informed public policy decisions; and
● Enhance our ability to communicate with one another to create vibrant and livable cities.
