About the MRCC

Driven by the pressures of corporate competition, Midwestern capital elites envision a network of highspeed trains linking the scattered cities of flyover land into a dense urban grid. Oblivious to territories, histories and peoples you would whisk your way from center to center like a roulette ball spinning aimlessly through the global casino. What gets lost in the dreams of power are the connections between the city and the country, the earth and the sky, the past and the future.

The Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor is a call for longer, slower, deeper connections between the territories where we live. It’s a cartography of shared experience, built up by those who nourish lasting ties between critical groups, political projects, radical communities and experiments in alternative existence.
