Residency at the Design Studio for Social Intervention
This month I kick off an intensive artist residency at the Design Studio for Social Intervention (DS4SI), which is a "space for artists, activists, academics and other social interventionists to reframe, reimagine, and reinvigorate the possibilities of the non-profit sector." While there, I'll be working with a team of nine high school interns—part of Youth Activism Design Institute's effort to "place the youth most affected by violence at the center of the efforts to bring an end to violence." Leveraging the design research approach that I use as a Strategist at Continuum, we will conduct surveys and one-on-one interviews with individuals who are in the crosshairs of social violence in Boston. In an extension of their ongoing campaign Let's Flip It, we will work to create a meaningful "intervention" that will address social violence and resonate within the community.
