Design Your [Neighbor]hood (DYH) is a multi-session workshop focused on visual art, design—in the broadest sense—and social change. Teens develop skills and partnerships to further a future in the design industry all while making a difference in their communities and the spaces where they live and learn.

Previous projects include partnerships with Seattle Parks and Recreation in reimagining the Teen Room at the South Park Community Center, Arts and Academics Academy where students redesigned the school’s computer lab and hallway, and a partnership with Seattle’s Youth Violence Prevention Initiative, where the young designers worked in teams to propose three teen-friendly concepts for the Seattle Waterfront.

Support for Design Your [Neighbor]hood is provided by Hearst Foundations and Robert Chinn Foundation.
