PEASE Academy & Augsburg College Collaboration
Teens from PEASE Academy in Minneapolis and students in Longo’s Augsburg College Art 225 Graphic Design I and Art 320 Typography classes explored what it means to be resilient. Themes such as addiction, recovery and common challenges that all humans face were expressed through creative writing, collage and the design of a zine. One of the goals of the project was to challenge stereotypes by giving young people affected by addiction a voice through self-expression and self-representation in an environment of mentorship, creativity and introspection.
All of the project participants were able to discover their own creative potential while building better social ties, networks and support.

Student work will be displayed until October 8 at the Student Art Gallery in the Christensen Center at Augsburg College, 22nd Ave South at 7 ½ Street in Minneapolis.
