Handwritten is a place and space for pen and paper. We showcase things in handwriting, but also on handwriting. And so, you'll see dated letters and distant postcards alongside recent studies and typed stories. 

#TeensTakeCharge • Event

April 28th, 2017

Launch Event

In the debates over how to improve New York City's unequal public school system, students' voices are too often left out. No longer.

On Friday, April 28th, high school students from Harlem and the Bronx took the stage and delivered testimony about their daily experiences in school, shining a light on issues few policymakers are willing to confront. The topic for the evening was, "This is my reality," and the performances included open letters, slam poetry, rap, and spoken word. 

In addition to the formal program, there was an array of interactive pre-event activities designed to inform and engage the public about educational inequity. Teens Take Charge members led pop-up conversations, a letter-writing campaign, a live art installation, photo booth, and more.

The events are free and open to the public. We welcome all members of the community, especially elected officials.


The second event is currently in the works. To get updates, visit www.teenstakecharge.com and sign up for their newsletter.
