STREET ART LAB is a collaborative workshop exploring citizenship, democracy, and civic engagement by combining scholarly inquiry with actual life experience through the development and formation of new creative work. Based on e America Project, this workshop connects students to communities outside of the University and world events through civic engagement.

Central themes of the workshop include:

• An exploration of the dreams of citizenship and democracy
• Speculating on new modes of interaction between architect and technology
• Collaborating with peers, across disciplines, and outside of the University
• Developing work through creative process and social practice
• Enhancing critical thinking, research skills, and critical dialogue
