As part of a project commissioned by the former Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles, youth from Los Angeles and Hamilton High Schools collected stories and information about Mid City through research and personal experiences, a story summit at St. Elmo Village and a tour of Little Ethiopia. During workshops at William Grant Still Art Center in South Los Angeles, 9 youth worked with artists Teresa Toliver and Mimi Klabon to create their designs. LA Commons Community Arts Program alumnus Khari Scott provided key technical support to the project in translating the designs to digital form to be printed on light pole banners
