As students are investigating social justice questions from all sides of the issues, they’ve spent several months interviewing stakeholders and breaking down the complex information through creative projects.

To investigate how public spaces are policed, students from Life Sciences Secondary School in Harlem are collaborating with CUP and Teaching Artist Stephen Kwok. They’ve interviewed representatives from the NYCLU and Picture the Homeless, asking: Who has the right to hang out in public spaces? Who gets prosecuted for loitering? Who decides?

As a way to process the diverse perspectives, students created artwork that broke down their experiences. They even created “talking heads” to reimagine conversations between the stakeholders!

Students will be wrapping up their investigations in the next month, so stay tuned for updates on their final projects!
