Tonight! Solutions Twin Cities


Solutions Twin Cities, a series that showcases “leading edge” work by local designers, architects and others, has scheduled a program for October 19.

Organizers say it’s the only place you’ll find “glocal and citizen journalism, do-it-yourself bio-diesel vehicles, urban camouflage street art, sustainable architecture and humanitarian design, Minnesotans rebuilding the Gulf Coast, transformative homeless theater, artistic street culture for urban youth and sustainable sexuality.”

Wow. That’s some promise.

The fast-paced program will provide a series of presenters called “solutionists” 6 minutes and 40 seconds each to “wow” the audience with their work. The tight time frame allows each presenter just enough time to present 20 rapid-fire slides, ensuring a high impact exchange of ideas.

Doors will open for Solutions Volume 2 at Studio 1414 at 7 p.m., Friday, October 19. Presentations will take place from 8 to 11 p.m. The evening will wind up with a reception until midnight with music from local DJ, Booka B. Tickets are $6 online or with a student ID and $8 at the door. Studio 1414 is located at 1414 Marshall Street NE, Minneapolis.
