League of Creative Interventionists

There’s this magazine called GOOD – it’s a quarterly publication that also exists online. It’s a space for people “to share creative solutions for living well and doing good.” It’s worth checking out. But this post is about The League of Creative Interventionists, which appears to be an off-shoot of the website, started by San Francisco-based artist Hunter Franks, who is affiliated, if not employed by GOOD. They champion creative placemaking and tactical urbanism, with a mission to “build community through creativity.” A global network in its most nascent stages, they propose a theme each month around which people organize creative projects in their communities. It looks like he has received funding from at least one grant, and possibly GOOD. From everything I can tell (and it just started in February), it’s probably a temporary project, or one that could turn into a non-profit at some point.
