Uptown Summer Showcase and NATURE Lab Prototype Reveal
August 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT
Join us for the final celebration of the 2018 Uptown Summer youth employment program and see what we’ve been working on! At 1pm, architect Cameron Toler will be presenting the NATURE Lab prototypes generated from last week’s community design think tank. Then, we’ll watch a few short films about the Uptown Summer program and hear the finished radio pieces the youth employees have been laboring over for the past five weeks. The youth were tasked with sharing stories of environmental justice and resilience. Expect to hear them report on topics including gardening, negligent landlords, and police brutality. The Uptown Summer ’18 programming has been absolutely packed with diverse guests, eye-opening workshops, and hands-on skill-building. We are excited to share what we’ve learned, discovered, and created!
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
