With the support of LA 2050 Big City Forum proposes to expand Big City Lab: a social practice and design education initiative founded by artist and educator Leonardo Bravo. The focus for Big City Lab is the urban environment as a site for meaning making and building critical thinking skills and social responsibility for students. We will partner with four schools within the Camino Nuevo Charter Academy campuses in the greater MacArthur Park area to impact their middle and high school students enrolled in the Ethnic Studies 4 All program.
