Push for Good: This Week's Guide to Crowdfunding Creative Progress

by Alessandra Rizzotti

April 27, 2013

Instead of focusing on the conflicts of Somalia, this documentary webseries and photography collection will bring you inspiring stories about its innovative architects, the unconventional movers, and its ambitious creators. Read more from GOOD community member Kafia Ahmed.

Aiming to increase civic engagement in Logan Square, Chicago, nonprofit and arts-based community development organization archi-treasures will host concrete casting workshops free to the public so that the community and local artists can beautify the neighborhood together. Learn more from archi-treasures co-founder Joyce Fernandes.

Through GOOD community member Reveca Torres' nonprofit organization Backbones, 22 photographers will be paired with 22 models with spinal chord injuries to create photo essays that highlight the abilities of those with SCI. The project debuts in Chicago on June 29, 2013 at the National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago and will exhibit from October to November at the Mercy Corps Education Center and Gallery. Backbones will be celebrating Neighborday through an event leading up to their fifth annual 5K in Prospect Heights, Illinois on April 28.
