101 is an open-source collaborative developing innovative and visionary solutions to improve the urban experience in Birmingham. We are after the answer of one simple question, “Birmingham would be a better place if….”. Many organizations have asked this question and many are acting on those answers, yet the ability to visualize possibilities, take action, and connect people striving for the same outcome have yet to materialize. It is important for a “place” to exist where ideas and solutions are not hoarded but open for everyone to interpret and development.
101’s goal is to produce 101 actual suggestions for improving Birmingham. These encompass a broad range of topics; drawing on the physical, social, environmental, political and aesthetic realms. They range from one-liners to complex propositions. Many propose new physical forms while others focus on restructuring existing organizations or policies.
Do you have an idea about how to make Birmingham a better place to live, work, and play? Tell us about it! either post a comment or join us at one of our meetings at 6:00 on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, located at Temple Studios on the 2nd floor of Woodrow Hall, 5504 1st Ave North, Birmingham AL.
