Free Public Forum: Programming FOR the Future WITH the Future

Policy and programming for and about young people is stronger when young people are included in the planning process. But as obvious as that may seem, co-designing next generation systems with young people has not been standard practice. Until now. Join us on Wednesday, November 15 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco for an illuminating overview of what co-designed systems look like in principle, and participate in a cross-generational workshop to experience what this modality feels like in practice.

This event will be facilitated by youth and adult program leaders in collaboration with Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Chief of Program and Pedagogy, and Rebeka Rodriguez, Civic Engagement Manager, both of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Church Street School for Music and Art (New York, NY) provides process-oriented art and music education to students of all ages. The organization's affordable programs serve a range of socially, culturally, and economically diverse communities. Since its founding in 1990, Church Street School has been dedicated to the idea that individual experience and personal discovery foster creative thinking and confidence. As the only not-for-profit school for the arts in Lower Manhattan, it strives to serve as community center for the neighborhood: a safe place where students, parents, children and neighbors share creative experiences, where kids play and grow together, where those with the challenge of disabilities find a place to shine.
