Our friends at the Bold Italic taught a writing workshop at 826 Valencia to get students thinking about the future of San Francisco. Then, they animated the students’ writing and posted them both up on the Bold Italic! Here’s what the Bold Italic had to say about the project:
You could ask a scientist or an urban planner or a psychic what the future of San Francisco holds, but that’s boring. We decided to hit up the city’s most imaginative demographic: little kids. The Bold Italic taught a class with 826 Valencia this past fall called “Hello from the Future,” in which we asked eight 10- to 12-year-olds to fantasize about what San Francisco will look like decades and centuries down the line. They spent three weeks writing down their ideas, which we turned into stories, podcasts, and posters from Western Editions.
