Winners of First Annual Wege Prize! / by Philip Han

'On March 3rd, Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts was alive with energy and possibility as the first annual Wege Prize wrapped up with an awards and presentation ceremony that represented the culmination of many months of brainstorming, networking, pushing forward, experimenting, failing, learning, and heading back to the drawing board to draw way outside of the lines.

$30,000 in total cash prizes was awarded through the competition, which challenged transdisciplinary collegiate teams to work collaboratively to solve the wicked problem of creating a circular economy.'
