*Creating Resilience

art by transitional age youth of San Francisco
Event detail

Shining a light on the extraordinary talent of young artists, this exhibit from the Art Program at Larkin Street Youth Services, looks through the lens of Creating Resilience and is hosted by the San Francisco Public Library's TAY(k) Care Program. Organized by Larkin Street -- the largest provider of housing, healthcare, employment and education services to young people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco -- the exhibit features photographs, sewing and fashion design, music videos, spoken word, poetry, dance, theater and other performance modalities.

The work demonstrates the dedication, leadership and self-determined artistry of some of Larkin Street’s most advanced participating artists, who participate in the program as a means for self-expression and toward career-track employment. These young people are the future leaders of these fields and their bravery and honesty through trying times of transition are a daily inspiration.

The TAY(k) Care program at SFPL is a program created through a Friends of the SF Public Library Innovation Grant which seeks to answer the question: How can the urban library better serve transitional age youth who are experiencing homelessness, are at risk of experiencing homelessness or are marginalized in some other way? As part of the program librarians are working to create community with local TAY and TAY service providers like Larkin Street.

This exhibit will be on view on the 3rd Floor of the San Francisco Public Library between July 13 and September 19, 2019.

The Exhibit Celebration Night will take place on Thursday, August 8th at 5:00 p.m.
