working with VOICES

On Thursday I did a workshop with 10 students from the Penrose neighborhood, up by Temple. The summer program is part of a several-year leadership training organized by VOICES and offered to area high school students.

This group has been working on projects related to an exhibition they will have at Tyler, on the topic of curating their neighborhood. Unlike the resistance I have felt from other groups regarding the possibility of positive resources and assets in one’s neighborhood- this group has been doing a lot of historical research and interviews to learn about the history and resources present in thier neighborhood- and they have really gained a sense of pride through this process. I wanted them to focus on what they have learned, and what personal impact this process has had on them- and by extension, what message do they want to share about this process with their community?  We tried out a more general postcard template for the first time:

Videos will be posted tomorrow!!
