mx: mind map + planning


Our main idea for this project is "KC pride" basically bringing together all of Kansas City's subcultural(s) / communities together. We really want to highlight local businesses and have a "one stop shop" so to speak to find anything you need to know about our city. We want to include events, activities, places with sub sections such as music, arts, sports, active, foodies, night life, and historic fun facts. We plan to actually go out and talk to business owners / interview them for our research. We've made a list of locations we're interested in visiting. Our next steps will be to contact them and set up interviews. We also have set some goals but still need to figure out scheduling and deadlines.
