Finding Belonging Curriculum

January 25, 2020

The Belonging Initiative is a collaboration between Young Cultural Stewards and Tonika Johnon. This collaboration between ArtSeed, YCS Fellows, Inferno, and TRACE has engaged over 6,000 youth across 100 Chicago parks to explore questions around
belonging, acceptance, and interconnection.

Throughout the summer of 2019, youth worked in partnership with teaching artists to interrogate their parks and neighborhoods and critically reflect on boundaries and barriers as well as the places of welcoming and sanctuary within our hyper-segregated city.
