We are looking for educators in museum studies and design who are interested in facilitating a practicum project for a team of their students.
This project will relate the legacy of the East Bay’s premier bicycle advocacy group, the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, to in-person and online audiences.
2012 is the fortieth anniversary of the EBBC, whose history includes impactful improvements to the transportation systems of the East Bay, such as Bikes on BART and bike lanes on bridges. Also, the individuals who propelled these actions were dynamic, complex activists.
The EBBC would like for this history to be curated from a new collection and displayed in a large timeline of photos, newspaper articles, quotes, and stories for an audience of approximately 300 attendees at its mid-November annual membership party. Leading up to the party, select text and images would also be published in the EBBC’s membership newsletter and on the EBBC’s website.
Artists and Timeframe
This is an ideal project for motivated students to work with current, local “history” and with various media that is sure to reach a broad audience and support advocacy today. Due to the condensed time frame (final products would be needed in mid-October)and the variety of products, we seek a self-managing, coordinated team with direction from an experienced educator in museum studies, design, or journalism.
