Official description from the City of Minneapolis:
The nonconference theme – Creative Engagement and Action using arts and placemaking – is an in-depth look at creative engagement strategies and creative placemaking. Participants will be immersed into a experiential atmosphere where they will gain the skills and strategies to take creative placemaking techniques back to their own community and do it from start to finish.
The nonConference aims at enabling participants to:

  • Gain practical skills and tools to improve engagement and planning efforts;
  • Explore common challenges that most small organizations face;
  • Share ideas and approaches used to address challenges and bring solutions; and
  • Meet others, build new relationships and “broaden the table” around common goals and interests
Our exhibit will feature products and services from the JXTALabs, including Environmental Design, Tactical Urbanism, Textiles and Screenprinting, Graphic Design and Public Art. We will bring both examples of past work and opportunities for people to experience elements of our engagement strategies and art and design practices.

Including work from artist and #JXTATextiles instructor Lindsay Splichal.

Description from the official website:

I AM KXNDNESS is an art show in which money is of no value. All of the artworks being shown will be available only by performing acts of kindness – ranging from playing with animals at a shelter to volunteering at a nursing home to assisting a gallery during open hours. Each work of art will have a designated kindness chosen by the artist. To “purchase” the works the patron will put their name into a bowl next to the work of art they are wishing to obtain. At the end of the evening a name will be drawn from each bowl and that is the person who will receive the artwork once the designated act of kindness is completed.”

All of the details here.
