WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?


Attention MICA Students,

Alissandra and I have been working hard on a program that we hope is extremely helpful to a lot of you.

If you haven't started thinking about life after graduation, you probably should. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? is designed to help you decide which city best fits your needs after graduation. 14 cities will be explored both nationally and internationally. We will be covering 6 big art hubs, 4 hidden gems, and 4 unexpected international destinations: New York, Los Angeles, Boston, D. C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Portland, Vancouver, Tokyo, Lisbon, Berlin and Johannestown.

Come and find out the things you REALLY want to know about a city:

Tax rate
Cost of living (specific prices)
Weather
Public transportation (cost, types, quality)
Cost of rent and utilities
Crime rates
Median age
Pollution/green spaces
Veggie friendliness
List of concerts for the month
Music venues
Festivals
Legendary foods
Save 'N Splurge charts (shopping, dining and entertainment examples for all budgets)
Compare And Contrast charts with the prices of specific items
Maps
"Hot industries" information

And much MUCH more!!!

Finally, Cara Ober will be there to answer some questions and tell us a little bit about her experience. Cara is a writer, artist, curator, teacher, gallery owner and blogger who exhibits and works in Baltimore, D.C., Atlanta, North Carolina, Texas, UK, NYC and Philadelphia. She is a great resource and will be talking about how she got to connect the dots from MICA to where she is now.

It is NOT a lecture program, so you can mingle and check the different computer screens that have all of the information about each city at your own leisure, we will also have pamphlets available for you to take home.
