Look Forward Madison

In these difficult times, what does it mean to connect with each other? How can we "look forward" to a time that feels different than the present? What do YOU look forward to? 

The City of Madison invites you to share how you, your neighbors, your friends and family members, your coworkers, and others have been supporting and uplifting each other in ways big and small. Show us what holds "us" together during this challenging time. We want to see what makes you feel positive, inclusive, and resilient. 

Every member of our community is vital.  We're in this together, even as we are apart during "Safer at Home."


We see you going out of your way to promote inclusivity, positivity, and resilience in your everyday life and we want to celebrate that. 

  • LIKE/SHARE/TAG @lookforwardmadison on Instagram or Facebook or @lookforwardmsn on Twitter and use #lookforwardmadison on your posts
  • Print a poster for your window or a coloring sheet for your fridge 
  • Share LOOK FORWARD through your website or e-newsletter 
  • Create a short video that shows how you are looking forward

This project is championed by a group of employees across various City of Madison departments, coordinated by Madison Public Library and Madison Arts Commission. Please reach out with questions, ideas, or comments via email:

Want a set of Look Forward coloring sheets but don't have a printer at home? Coloring sheets will be available at Madison Public Libraries when they re-open. If you are a Madison resident and want a set before then, please email with your request and include your name and home address. The Madison Arts Commission will get a set printed and out to you as soon as possible.
