Designed and led by Territory Urban Design Team, this youth empowerment walking tour visits public sites in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood valued by young people. The tour will be primarily outdoors, and will include five to ten stops selected by the team.
This tour meets at the Argyle Red Line CTA Station. Please wear comfortable shoes, and come prepared for the weather.
Territory is young people building voice, vision and agency through the practice of design in our communities. Territory design teams are teens ages 14 and up, facilitated by professional architects, artists and planners. The team works in alliances with business districts, residents, and community organizations to transform under-utilized public spaces into welcoming places. Since 2011, we have completed nine site specific design projects, from pop-up placemaking events to a semi-permanent parklet for Chicago neighborhoods including Albany Park, Uptown, and beyond.
