Update – Fully Funded!
Thanks to our backers, we have reached our goal. Thank you for your support and thank you to everyone who tweeted/posted/emailed their friends about us. If you are in Detroit, come say "hi" at the opening on September 21st.
We still need your support.
Reaching the goal means that we can afford to bring the work to Detroit along with everyone from the studio who is available. We want to go further. Every artist has spent hundreds of dollars prototyping and producing their work. Every dollar that you give helps cover their costs.
Besides, we have lots of great rewards to give out.
About the Project
We’re the Border Town design studio, a group of artists, architects and designers.
We’ve had a half-dozen guest speakers and a team of foreign correspondents reporting from all over the world. We even took a field trip to Niagara Falls.
The projects that we’re making include:
- a soundscape about crossing the border
- a transforming garment
- a museum retrospective of a never-built border town
- a colouring book for border town residents
- short stories
- critical cartography
- a surveillance object
- a board game about smuggling
We’ve been invited to display our work at the Detroit Design Festival in September. It'll be an exhibition about border towns, held in a border town.
We’re so proud of the work that everyone’s done. Help us show it to the world.
