What is the cost of privilege in the eyes of youth? Norris Square Neighborhood Project (NSNP) is giving you a chance to find out for yourself.
Youth who work with the Kensington-based community organization have been pondering the question in group discussions and expressing those ideas through art. That art will be showcased on Friday, Dec. 16, at 2141 N. Howard Street.
“Students have discussed economic, racial, and other issues affected by privilege. They’ve been delving into what privilege means to them, their community, and globally,” said NSNP staff.
Plus, there will be screen-printed tee shirts, prints and homemade soaps for sale (perfect for you last-minute holiday shoppers). Attendees will also have the opportunity to screen-print their own posters with designs by students.
This is far from the first time NSNP has engaged youth in topical conversation. Youth involved with the nonprofit interviewed people experiencing homelessness this past summer (and, yes, made some art based on those conversations).-30-
