Foot for Thought
Students Motivated by the Arts and JJC RSAT Program
Youngstown, OH, USA
This poster was made using the feet and writings of
boys from the Youngstown Juvenile Justice Center,
under the direction of SMARTS' teachers Suzanne Gray
and Kelly Bancroft.
"The writing teacher and I spent weeks with the boys,
talking about where their feet had taken them, how
they could connect the theme of souls and soles, what
they themselves could do to foster peace. The project
made them realize that choices and decisions impact
not only one's self, but the world at large. They
were excited to be a part of such a global project,
knowing that their words and works would promote a
feeling of unity."
