What Role Can Teens In Flint, MI Play In Rebuilding Their City?

What role can teens in Flint, MI play in stimulating civic and social innovation in their city? We are excited to bring #TinyWPA to Flint in late October as part of the ArtPlace funded Flint Public Art Project and be a part of the Congress For Urban Transformation (C.U.T.) with friends Damon Rich, James Rojas, and others. During our visit , in addition to speaking at C.U.T., we will be leading a TinyWPA design build place making project with teens in Flint. A bit shorter than a typical TinyWPA project, it is the hope of the Flint Public Art Project organizers that this will stimulate a larger conversation about the role of youth in rebuilding the city; greater general civic engagement and social innovation; and act as a ‘seed’ for more substantial youth-led TinyWPA activities in Flint in the future. Thanks to Stephen Zacks for asking Public Workshop and TinyWPA to be a part of this great project.
