Imagining Equity: Minneapolis 2040 Mobile Engagement Tool - Molly Van Avery and Mike Hoyt
In Minneapolis, artists Molly Van Avery and Mike
Hoyt designed and built two crankies that work as a mobile engagement tool. Mike Hoyt would load the crankie boxes into a three wheeled bicycle and bike them to community
events such as picnics, shopping malls, and concerts.
They would invite people
to crank the crankies to see images of Minneapolis past and present and then draw or write their ideas
about a Minneapolis in 2040 that is healing and reconciling from the negative impacts of inequity. The ideas and feedback generated by the crankies was given to City staff for the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update.
