Dream Deserts / Oasis

Creating a space for ourselves

  • We discussed Dream Deserts (the system where youth fall victim to when they do not follow their dreams because of lack of resources, knowledge and support from friends, family or other adult figures in their life)

  • The way we combat Dream Deserts is by creating an Oasis, a place for youth to thrive and cultivate leadership and our talents.

  • At our table we came up with several ideas from art galleries all the way to a social media campaign. We want to create safe, inclusive and creative spaces. We w\ant to create a outlet/hub that will affirm and acknowledge the wonderful work our generation is doing in the city of Chicago.
