Make a website that serves as a billboard for a community of people that you consider yourself a part of. Design and build a site that collects and displays user submissions.
We'll talk about various ways of saving and displaying user submissions, including how to use Are.na as a CMS and how to use the Airtable API, and other lower-code options. I encourage you to think creatively about this.
At the end of the semester, we'll have an exhibition/presentation of the finished billboards. So, start thinking about where and how your site could be installed in physical space. It could be projected, accessed via a QR code/sign, put on a monitor, etc.
