Help from our friends

We received 22 responses in response to our call for proposals, and they all were really remarkable. We asked three of our friends—Rob Forbes, founder of PUBLIC Bikes and Design Within Reach, photographer Richard Barnes, and Jeannene Przyblyskivice president, dean of academic affairs and a professor at the San Francisco Art Institute—to help select eight experiments for our summer–fall season. To make the process a little easier, we decided all eight will receive Micro Mission 888 Grants. It was hard work, but fun.

We'll announce our schedule of experiments soon, so stay tuned.
