About the Program
Community Services Unlimited is working with a locally recruited team of youth participating in CSU's From the Ground Up peer-to-peer training program to create youth-led, family-friendly educational programming in South LA Wetland Park. Three events organized by the youth and CSU will feature activities for all ages to build an ongoing awareness of the artwork onsite and discussion of water, California history, and community. In the course of three events, guided park tours of the wetlands, artist talks, a writing workshop, film screening, video story collection project, take-home drought-tolerant planting, information booths and other activities will envision the large-scale artwork as a way to activate ongoing local use of park - an environmental stormwater project on a rehabilitated brownfield- as a public gathering place for the immediate surrounding neighborhood.
