Neighborland is an outreach and engagement tool that makes it easy to share a desire or idea with neighbors, community groups, and city planners.  The concept is based on installation artist Candy Chang’s famous project tagging buildings in New Orleans with “Before I die…” and “I wish this was…”, with plenty of chalk for passing local residents to reply below.

Also founded in New Orleans, Neighborland takes the conversation online thanks to development support from Tulane University’s Social Entrepreneurship Program and the Rockfeller Foundation. Like other online idea-sharing tools like Mindmixer and Change By Us, Neighborland has been getting a lot of buzz with plans to expand to other cities.


An interesting and emotional art project in New Orleans by installation artist and urban planner Candy Chang is drawing attention to one’s life objectives. If you are in town, stop by the corner of Marigny and Burgundy (900 Marigny St) to check it out and add your thoughts.
