CLIENT: IDEA Public Charter School
"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."
George Washington Carver
Indigo Creative Works was commissioned to produce an Augmented Reality Installation, “Developing Strong Minds: Exploring the Evolution from Deanwood to Carver to IDEA” for IDEA’s 20th Anniversary Gala.
The immersive installation guides visitors through a journey of IDEA's storied educational roots and the history behind the school's historic building from the Deanwood School (1909 to 1945) to Carver Elementary (1946 to 1988) to IDEA (1999 to the present). Visitors used a mobile app to reveal augmented reality content and experience eye-to-eye storytelling that traces the schools' students, faculty, history, and origin from the past to the present, bringing alive memories and little-know stories of Washington, DC’s historic black Deanwood community pride, resilience, and scholarly achievement.
The AR experience featured content highlighting the stories of great African American achievers such as Tuskegee Airman: Major Andrew D. Turner (Deanwood School alumni) and George Washington Carver (inventor/botanist) to name a few.
