I Love Austin

 

Austin Coming Together is leading a “Quality of Life” neighborhood planning process in the Austin community.  Our goal is to create a 5-year plan for Austin that is driven by community voices.  Our kick-off summit was held on July 29th and attended by over 200 residents.
 
While this summit was a great success, it was also very “adult-dominated”.  In response, we want to create a space where we can engage with younger community members (and they can engage with each other) so that they can also begin to take leadership in shaping Austin’s future through the planning process.
 
To that end, ACT, in partnership with the Park District, LISC, Pyramid Players Productions, the CTU Foundation, Root 2 Fruit Youth Foundation, and Chicago Community Loan Fund is organizing the “I Love Austin Youth Showcase and Summit”.  This event will feature youth performers and artists from Austin, as well as leadership development, activism, and arts workshops.  At the end of the summit, we will put out a call to action to get involved in the Quality of Life Planning process (see below for overview of agenda/program).
