One For One teens design theatre marquee banners on State Street

Final banner images for State Street!

Thanks to Tanner Woodford and the fantastic team at Design Museum of Chicago, our teens got to be a part of a workshop to make 116 banners that will hang on State Street throughout September 2019.

"The designs for the marquees were all created by young people living in Chicago communities that struggle with violence. For the project, the Design Museum worked with students enrolled in the One For One program – an organization that builds positive connections for young people living in Chicago communities where violence is a major issue."—CBS Chicago

Curbed Chicago also featured the project: “Iconic Loop theatre marquees get graphic design makeover”

We are so proud of how One For One participants are stepping up in Chicago and representing themselves in our community!
