Assemble unites artists, technologists, and makers to provide a platform for experiential learning, opening creative processes, and building confidence through making. Through the intentional combination of Making, STEAM, and Digital Media Learning, Assemble will partner with local experts from the YMCA programs to lead a student exploration of identity as to identify one’s self, one’s space, and one’s community. This will ultimately lead to the definition of a space for creativity within the Ormsby Recreation Center on the South Side. Students will develop traditional art making and computer programing skills to start to overcome challenges they face, such as overcoming physical and socio-economic barriers. The project will be a tangible interactive exhibit and learning experience all in one.
