YouthStudio 2018, presented by HTFC Planning & Design, brings together 30 local middle school students to learn the ins and outs of designing for their community. Over two days, the students will hear from a diverse mix of experts, then combine this learning with their own experiences to design and build a temporary installation in their neighbourhood.
This pilot project aims to empower local youth, encourage engagement with public spaces and inspire the next generation of designers and community leaders.
Student designs will be on display at The Forks main atrium on Friday May 11 from 2:30-4pm. The public is welcome to view the designs, and the students will be on-hand to share their ideas. #YouthStudio2018
