Larkin Street Youth Services
Larkin Street Youth Services provides a range of services to homeless and at-risk youth in San Francisco and has been particularly critical to the young LGBTQ community here. We developed this community project, called the Guerrilla Street Museum, through a design studio at the California College of the Arts. We worked with Larkin Street’s arts programs to develop a ‘museum of the street’ kiosk to collect and display creative expressions of young people’s lives on the streets and serve as a touchstone for outreach. The Market Street Prototyping Festival displayed the work on the street during a 3-day outdoor festival, with many of the homeless youth stopping by to see themselves reflected in the Guerrilla Street Museum.
