City State is a platform for experimentation and provocation that explores the character and complexity of our city. City State catalyzes conversation and collaboration allowing for the identification and mobilization of creative solutions for our ongoing and future challenges.
City State inspires and challenges Indianapolis to think more creatively and rigorously about its past, present, and future. The hope is to stimulate our collective imagination towards designing and implementing strategies that move us towards a more just, more resilient, and more wild and generous creative citizenry.
City State is a partnership with IUPUI's Art and Humanities Institute, Ignition Arts, iMOCA, People for Urban Progress, and PRINTtEXT.
