Our first ever Youth 2 Youth Action Summit was a big success this past weekend. The exhibits highlighted work the Design Studio has done with teens around youth violence over the last 4 summers. Close to 100 participants dug in for interactive activities, Let's Flip It button-making and t-shirt design, mini-discussions and more. Thanks to all who came out, and we look forward to continuing to build on the momentum. And many thanks to our alumni and volunteer facilitators, as well as our curator, Kelly Sherman.
In the top photo Youth Activism Design Studio alum Olmis Sanchez talks about how they designed and played Big Urban Games in communities that were seen as dangerous and negative. In the above photo, she gets a group out to play!
The interactive exhibit is still open for youth groups by appointment. Please contact lori [at] ds4si [dot] org. We'd love to have you! A video of the 3-day event will be posted in the coming weeks as well... Finally, more Let's Flip It pins, stickers and flyers are available too.
