In the Summer 2013 issue of YALS, K-Fai Steele, authored an article on the teen participatory design and action research she and her colleagues facilitated at the Free Library of Philadelphia. The project focused on creating spaces in the library that support teen needs and interests.
The print article didn’t include the photos that the Library made available to document the process the teens took part in. The images are important to the story K-Fai tells, so we wanted to publish them here.
Teens imagine and vote for what they think their ideal teen space should be all about.
