Through the theme of Everyday Festival, IdeasCity New Orleans will take place April 15–20, 2019 featuring a residency of emerging practitioners working at the intersections of urbanism, art, design, community activism, and technology. In tandem with local partners, IdeasCity New Orleans — for the first time — will support the prototyping of selected cultural, ecological, and material strategies at public sites. Temporary projects addressing environmental justice will be mounted in key locations of the Tremé neighborhood in collaboration with the following organizations: Bell Artspace, New Orleans African American Museum and the Propeller Incubator. IdeasCity New Orleans will culminate in a high-profile public program and day-long festival on Saturday, April 20th.

Applications for the New Orleans Residency Program are open through January 15.
