We will be at this event as a representative of the limited number of food trucks in New Orleans. These folks work their tales off and at times get a bad rap from less informed citizens who don’t realize the quality of food being created by the trucks. There are 4 different initiatives: Food Truck Support & Awareness, Bicycle Safety & Support, Street Corner Improvement, & Improved Healthy Food Options. All are worthy, in our opinion, of support & reform where applicable. By the way, there will also be a number of food trucks at the event as well as a liquor distributor to wet your whistle. Please join us! ~ clndstnGOOD Ideas for Cities taps creative problem solvers to tackle real urban challenges and present their solutions at live events across the country. Thanks to a partnership between GOOD and CEOs for Cities and a generous grant from ArtPlace we’ve brought the program to six cities in 2012, and New Orleans is the final city in our series.Three months ago we issued a call for New Orleans creatives, who we organized into four teams. Each team has been issued a challenge proposed by the Neighborland community and paired with an urban leader working in the challenge space. At the event, they’ll present their ideas for a solution—and some real-life interventions already in action—to that challenge. The urban leaders will then join them onstage for a brief Q&A moderated by GOOD Ideas for Cities editor Alissa Walker. Afterwards, a reception will provide a perfect time for everyone to talk about how to move these ideas for New Orleans forward.
