“Making Nashville a more livable, safe and exciting city for Youth”
Design Your Neighborhood is a unique four-week internship experience for Nashville inner city Youth focused on architecture, urban design and planning, graphic design, and filmmaking. The youth are exploring issues related to design with highly trained professionals and city leaders. The program culminates with participants creating video shorts and a movie poster that will compliment a documentary movie based on their experiences. The documentary will be submitted to film festivals in Nashville and across the country. This is truly an once-in-a-lifetime experience for youth and adults alike!
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Art Works. DYN serves NEA’s overarching goal that “the arts contribute to the strengthening of communities.
