Minneapolis 2040

During the Minneapolis 2040 engagement events, community members interacted with an artist-designed engagement tool called Imagining Equity. The Imagining Equity Crankies are visual scrolls that illustrate Minneapolis’ past and present through a racial equity lens.

Five-year-old to eighty-year-old community members scrolled through the crankies during the engagement events. As they scrolled, each participant interpreted the visual narratives of Minneapolis’ past and present. An online version of the crankies was created for participants who could not make it to the in-person events. The videos are available with a voice-over narration that explains the images. This way, the crankies can be viewed by a wider audience, as well as have some context behind the imagery.

The artists commissioned to create the Imagining Equity Crankies and voice-over for the online version were Molly Van Avery and Mike Hoyt
