Northern Lights.MN Announces Winner of the 2018 Creative City Challenge

Excerpt from a recent Northern.Lights.MN e-newsletter:

Carry On Homes rendering by Carry On family

We are pleased to announce that Carry On Homes, a multi-functional pavilion hosting the stories of immigrants in Minnesota was selected by a national jury of arts professionals and community advocates as the winner of the 6th annual Creative City Challenge. Carry On Homes will be installed June - August in The Commons, where individuals can come together to explore the concept of home through community gatherings, workshops, live performances and personal reflection. Home is a universal idea that transcends divisions by race, religion, gender identity, and class. At home, we belong, we feel safe and we are loved.

Eric Quint, Chief Design Officer at 3M Company and Creative City Challenge Jury Chair said: “On behalf of the jury we want to congratulate the winning team for capturing the stories of immigrants searching for a place to build their homes. The multi-cultural team, connected through their artistic backgrounds, created this authentic installation to bring people together in the public space uniting them across nationalities.

The project is made possible by the City of Minneapolis’ Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy program in association with Northern Lights.MN and The Commons
