CREATING IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS AND MOBILE TOOLS
To Inspire Community Imagination And Civic Engagement
ArribaNM is a project of SouthWest Organizing Project and Design Studio for Social Intervention. It is supported by Santa Fe Community Foundation and WK Kellogg Foundation.
Indigenous Comicon 2017
ArribaNM! brings together artists, organizers and designers to create immersive environments and mobile organizing tools for New Mexicans to inspire community imagination and dream about a better future for everyone.
We believe modern civic engagement and organizing tools are mobile, networked and use culture to engage and captivate communities based on people’s passions, identities and love for pop culture. They can also support community development and local micro and small businesses. What could happen if we invested in these communities of passion, culture and creativity?
