We spent the majority of the Thursday of Violence week planning our final project and writing a proposal for a partnership with the South Chicago Arts Center. The students each picked an aspect of our project (the fence, the pathway, or the seating area) and spent time writing an individual proposal. Together as a group we merged each student’s proposal into a larger letter that we could send to the administration at the South Chicago Arts Center. It was wonderful seeing the students express their passion for each aspect of the project and to mold a final proposal that included the writing strengths of each student. We hope that this proposal will move us one step closer to making our Violence Memorial Peace walk a reality!
