Telling stories about our neighborhoods can bring our communities closer to our desired futures. In this interactive session, we will explore young people’s maps, artwork, and writing to uncover major themes in their neighborhood narratives. The presenter will share insights from Story/Space, an online project that connected youth in different places as they engaged in creative self-expression and neighborhood research. Discussion will address the puzzles and possibilities of place-based education, online learning, and justice-oriented research. (Note: this is a paper/research presentation.)
