Entire Neighborhood Transformed Into A Giant Street Art Project

Entire Neighborhood Transformed Into A Giant Street Art Project | art, education, and community | Scoop.it

After decades of being ignored and slowly sliding into disrepair, Wynwood as neighbourhood Miami was fast becoming a forgotten part of the city itself. But thankfully,  urban visionary Tony Goldman partnered with Jeffrey Deitch (director of  MoCa Los Angeles) on a mission to change and transform Wynwood from a dour community, to one covered in vibrant and inspiring art.

Abandonded parking lots, derelict street corners & rundown factories were handed over to the likes of some of the most innovative street artists in recent times - Futura, Shepard Fairey, OS Gemeos, Kenny Scharf, to work their magic. Funded and supported by local art grants and sponsors, their street art and murals now cover countless buildings and areas with Wynwood injecting a much-needed burst of life into what was a silent and forlorn part of Miami. In doing so they’ve created an area where art is accessible and open for everyone to enjoy and appreciate – as it should be...

Is America Really a Digitally Literate Nation? Do People Really Understand Inequity?Social Justice? | The Power of Us Blog

Is America Really a Digitally Literate Nation?  Do People Really Understand Inequity?Social Justice? | The Power of Us Blog | art, education, and community | Scoop.it

Recently a lot of articles and workshops have come to us about the digital divide and that it still exists. It is a relief that people are coming back to the realization that we have an uneven learning landscape. Here is a whole article. The following is an excerpt. This is a lot of information, but it is very important to understand the challenges in education.


“For children in the U.S., their homes, their communities, and their schools both represent and perpetuate inequity. In fact, the inequity of childhood is increasing, not shrinking.”

 

At the Broadband Summit hosted by the FCC and NTIA, I heard  stories of people who are new to technology and how difficult it is for some populations to embrace technology. Many people are still waiting to embrace the mouse. Of course now we can leapfrog to a tablet. But understanding is the key to embracing technology in meaningful ways. Outstanding were the NTIA projects that support the uses of technology in community ways.

 

Sadly, many communities are still not well-connected.
