Mapping Creativity

Despite the ubiquitous media-wank copy, Mapping Creativity by bTWEEN is a very interesting project seeking applications for a £25,000 grant to commission an "interactive project that drives Manchester's collective creativity".

In short, this has given rise to some interesting (and some more hackneyed) proposals for interactive projects that engage different social groups in Manchester. There are some clever ideas and some things I have seen done before but I really hope the judges fulfil their own remit and commission something that facilitates and forges "links between disconnected communities" using technology. It's a very worthy but slightly dubitable ask.
