We're still reeling from Craig's big win at Big Car. The challenge was to pitch an arts + tech idea that revolutionizes our city for the inaugural 5x5 event. This series of themed idea-pitching events awards $10,000 to one big idea, and is hosted by local innovators like Big Car and People for Urban Progress, and funded by CICF, the Efroymson Family Fund and Christel DeHaan Family Foundation.
Five finalists got the chance to pitch for the $10K. Our idea: bring movies to the people all over this city for some pop up cinema! The funds will be used to purchase a screen worthy of any outdoor venue and a portable sound and projection set up. Any field, any warehouse or gallery - any place at all is fair game. Who knows what we'll dream up?
We were incredibly honored to receive both the audience and judges' votes. Getting one of those over-sized checks is a pretty amazing thing! Thanks to Big Car, CICF and the rest of the crew for this incredible opportunity. We can't wait to turn this city into our theater!
