GRAFIKJAM



GrafikJam targets youth endangered by the physical and legal risks associated with interests in street art in the southwest Detroit community. Through an urban art-based curriculum, participants are exposed to the wider world of art while also engaging in programmatic decision-making and routine maintenance of the space where the program takes place. Youth from southwest Detroit, 100 cans of aerosol, a sanctioned outdoor canvas for painting, positive youth development, and several knowledgeable adults facilitates a summer's worth of memories. Here the youth have the opportunity to both teach and receive with others by sharing ideas and skills without letting pride and arrogance stop them from uniting.
