This project was created by students from Healthcare Alternative Systems, Inc. in Chicago IL during the spring of 2010.
Through a partnership with Urban Gateways, teaching artists Alison Lehner and Adil Mansoor led a group of students in an after school program investigating healthy decision making, drug abuse, and violence.
This video is documentation of writing done by the students. First is the reading of question students wrote to start conversations. Second is a series of poem written by the students.
This video features the song “Alive in 85” by Broken Social Scene.
