In May 2012, HOPE Art stayed closer to home and created art with kids in our own backyard at San Francisco’s City of Dreams program. Their mission is to help youth living in San Francisco’s low-income housing communities build brighter futures through mentorship and youth development. They are guided by a bold vision: To end the generational poverty cycle in the city’s most challenged neighborhoods.
Project HOPE Art planned 3 projects to introduce City of Dreams students to our work and the kids we work with in Haiti. Jenni Ward led a photo collage project, Sarah Boll and Sylwia Janosz led a paper bead making workshop and Elizabeth Marley led a life size architectural sculpture project. Shared learning at it’s finest!
