Building Community and Celebrating Places
IAMMIDCITY began as a community-branding project in 2014 intended to nurture Mid City's emerging identity as a culturally valuable region within the City of Baton Rouge, celebrate its diverse places and experiences, and bring together its residents, businesses, and organizations around these things. The project consists of four major components:
1. #IAMMIDCITY cutouts distributed to businesses, organizations, and residents
2. Mobile photobooth that pops up at local community events
3. IAMMIDCITY ambassadors group
4. Resident-led website and Instagram account (iammidcity.org and @iammidcity_BR)
Since 2014, Mid City Studio has distributed over 250 three-dimensional IAMMIDCITY wood cutouts to businesses, organizations, and residents in Mid City to be displayed, photographed, and posted on social media. The studio also began deploying the IAMMIDCITY photobooth on a regular basis for public events throughout the area. In November 2016, Mid City Studio began working with neighborhood leaders to form an IAMMIDCITY ambassadors group, which consists of residents from at least twelve different neighborhoods in the area. Mid City Studio hosts quarterly meetings with the ambassadors to discuss ideas and provide an outlet for voicing concerns. The residents requested a platform for sharing information, pictures, and events. Mid City Studio has since begun hosting the resident-led website and Instagram account. The website houses a community calendar, development updates, maps, and a resources page.
