'Claiming our Future' is a community engagement and public art project that will support Lawrence residents understanding of the history of race-based segregated housing policies, the impacts of climate change and how to collectively build a sustainable future. Through the history and narratives captured through a series of community discussions facilitated by both Groundwork Lawrence (GWL) and Elevated Thought (ET) youth, we will produce two murals in the city that will seek to educate, engage, and empower residents to contribute to spatial justice in Lawrence. www.elevatedthought.org
