Inspired by the engineering, intricate choreography, and impromptu interactions of your daily commute? Looking for a public platform to present your ideas to a captive audience? Wish there was an open mic night for historians and urbanists? A show-and-tell for your creative musings on transit?
Us, too. That’s why we are excited to announce Platform, a new series of cross-disciplinary programs created by the public for the public. Have an idea? We’ll give you a platform.
The Museum is now accepting program proposals for early Fall. We welcome submissions from all disciplines—history, science, engineering, visual and performing arts, urban studies, city planning, academic fields. The common denominator? Public transportation.
Submissions may include but are not limited to the following:
- Live performance (music, theater, dance, spoken word, storytelling, comedy)
- Film (documentary, fiction, creative media works)
- Visual Art (must be presentation or other programmatic discussion of artwork)
- Presentation (academic lecture, informal slideshow, etc)
- Panel discussion (propose participants, moderator, topic, your expertise)
- Other participatory events
Submissions will be reviewed by the Museum. To be considered in the first round, please submit a complete proposal by Friday, August 9 at noon.
