Over the past 6 months, Chicago youth leaders have collected stories from their peers across the state of Illinois about family-supported sexuality conversations.
In the third week of July, ICAH’s Make/Art/Space summer program helped youth artists shape these narratives into murals, dioramas, sculpture and visual poetry. Their artwork used the exact words from storytellers in order to amplify the real life narratives from youth.
The first event happened in partnership with University Church at the church courtyard on July 15. The artists donated a mural to the church which can be seen beside the fireplace in the sanctuary.
