Comcast Media & Technology Center Win Seed Funding for Project that Combines Art and Technology

CU Denver, Comcast Media & Technology Center’s project Five Points to Five Notes have been named as winners of the Presidential Initiative Grants for Urban and Place-Based Research.  CU Denver’s deans announced a multiyear, $500,000 initiative meant to “strengthen research related to urban development at CU Denver through a transdisciplinary research initiative engaging all schools and colleges with a focus on enhancing life quality for all, now and into the future.” The initiative aligns with University of Colorado President Mark Kennedy’s goal of advancing the distinctive renown of each of the four CU campuses—CU Denver’s being its prime location in downtown Denver, its strong network of community partners, and its preeminence in urban research.

The Five Points to Five Notes project involves creative work in the form of a public art commission and permanent installation to honor Denver’s African American jazz heritage in the Five Points area, and a multimedia augmented reality (AR) app for viewers to explore content related to place and history. The goals are to (1) create lasting art to enhance the area, (2) engage the community in meaningful reflection to lift up of their heritage and cultural history of place, and (3) educate, with innovative pedagogy, CU Denver students in a variety of skills, including understanding creative placemaking and the process of community empowerment through arts engagement.

Update: CMTC’s project team has been awarded ADITIONAL support from Bonfils Stanton Foundation.  We are thankful to our new sponsors and looking forward to building on this momentum to leverage support for this project.  Read more about the project here (Link).
