Health Care Transportation
Approximately 3.6 million Americans miss or delay medical care because they lack appropriate transportation to their appointments. How might we improve access to transportation options for individuals traveling to health care appointments?
Community Partnerships with the Arts
The needs and ideas of residents sometimes go unsolicited or unheard during public planning processes, and artists can be underutilized assets in the development of interventions. How might artists work in partnership with communities to develop strategies or interventions to address community-identified needs or goals?
Storytelling for Social Change
Individual stories powerfully communicate the underlying complexities of larger social movements and histories, but sharing those stories raise interesting logistical and ethical challenges. How might we capture and distribute stories to create social change?
