We're so excited to announce the completion of IT'S LIT: Words on Ice!

Made in collaboration with the Arts Council of New Orleans and students from The NET Charter High School, It’s LIT! recently made its grand debut at the Art + Place forum at studioBE.

It's LIT! was born through a paid 6-week design internship with 4 students from The NET. This project challenged students to think critically about the environments that they and their peers occupy and come up with a design that provided a safe space for New Orleans youth to come together and be creative (not to mention enjoy a sno ball). 

It's LIT will be making appearances at events throughout the school year as a mobile writing center/workshop space — bringing creative writing opportunities to youth around the city. Stay tuned with the Big Class blog and newsletter for updates!
