Action Area Art: Inclusive Growth and Mobility

How does the way our region gets around affect us as people? Get the whole (illustrated) story with this new, original piece by local graphic novelist Anna Christine. This graphic story was created to help community members relate their own lives to some of the issues around land use and transportation.

This comic was created as part of MetroCommon 2050 and is free for use by planners, policy-makers, and others to use as a tool to educate stakeholders.

MAPC held a grant competition to support artists to develop pieces that expressed the MetroCommon subject matter in any genre. Grants were awarded to support four different artists in developing, collectively, two comic books, a graphic story, a set of illustrations, and a film.

The topics for the art pieces are MetroCommon’s five “action areas.” The action areas are the five, interrelated topics by which the plan is organized: Climate Change Adaptation & Mitigation, Dynamic and Representative Government, Equity of Wealth and Health, Homes for Everyone, and Inclusive Growth & Mobility.
