This interactive discussion highlights opportunities and challenges in creative space development for youth. The panelists are leaders of youth organizations who are developing creative spaces that go beyond traditionally limited notions of sports and recreation. They show how the often edgy politics of fun inherent to music, hip hop and skateboarding cultures offer critical new tools in overcoming formidable challenges to creative space development. Anyone planning or involved with space projects for youth—or who enjoys having fun—should attend this dynamic panel.
