Minneapolis-St. Paul: Connecting to the Future
About the Project
Dec. 7, 2015
T Brand Studio, the custom content studio within the advertising department of The New York Times, asked Blue Chalk Media to produce a series of films for their client Dell Inc. that profiles cities on Dell’s list of “future-ready economies,” and how each city is innovating for a dynamic and resilient tomorrow.
In this film, Blue Chalk Media explores how innovators in Minneapolis-Saint Paul are quietly creating a diverse and thriving economy by embracing inclusivity. A metropolis that is home to large immigrant populations, a supportive arts scene and the densest medical technology hub in the world, Minneapolis-St. Paul sees the potential in creating connections and goes out of its way to ensure everyone has the potential to contribute to the city’s future.
The film is part of a paid post titled, “Future Ready Economies” featured on the NYTimes.com. The post includes an interactive list of the world’s most “future ready” cities as defined by a Harvard/MIT economic study that was commissioned by Dell.View the interactive paid post on The New York Times.
