Walk in our Shoes: Youth in Urban Design


Learn from youth designers, artists, and activists about how they are making the city a healthier place for diverse communities. Territory NFP is convening youth-led design organizations from across the city for a participatory conversation and skill share, free and open to people of all ages.

Territory is young people building voice, vision, and agency through the practice of design in communities. Through Territory’s design studio programs, young people practice urban design, public art, and community planning in the neighborhoods where they live and learn. Through Territory’s partnerships young people have a seat at the table, working with local organizations and funders to strengthen communities through design. Through Territory’s apprenticeship design team model, young people find their voice and step up to lead, using design as a platform for civic engagement. Through Territory, young people develop the tools, resources, and power to transform their neighborhoods and the city.

Youth-led events highlight Chicago artists under 21 years old and are organized by Grace Needlman, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, and Ellen Chu, Coordinator of Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs.
