The problem my group was presented with was the problem of solving the issue of excessive amounts of abandoned houses in an area. Abandoned houses which are boarded up and run down bring down the visual appeal of a neighborhood and attract a lot of unwanted attention. They are also unsafe for possible children living in the neighborhood who may be tempted to sneak in. This makes possible buyers of houses in the are wish to not move to that specific area. This problem tends to make neighborhoods unsafe in the sense that they attract people to unlawfully use those houses for their own reasons which often times result in making the neighborhood more dangerous. The abandoned houses also are taking up space that could be used in a more productive and effective way, to bring the community together, to be used by those in need, or to make the neighborhood more visually appealing. Our group was tasked with creating a plan to use those abandoned houses in a creative way that would benefit those living in the area.
Our group decided to convert the abandoned houses into community gardens. The community gardens would make the neighborhood more visually appealing as well as bring the community together. We would have to knock down the houses with the help of volunteers from companies and volunteers within the community who want to beautify the area. The community garden would be run mostly by volunteer work and would be self-sustaining after it was up on running. The volunteers could be people from the community who wish to take up gardening as a hobby or from the other groups. We arranged with several groups to get volunteers to the garden as a fun activity for the battered men, women, and children who were looking for a way to escape their situations and take their mind off of this situations. We also agreed to provide supplies to the group dealing with the problem of homelessness, providing them with houses in the area that they could fix up to house their people and to provide them with food to be able to feed all the people as long as they agreed to help keep the garden up on running by volunteering their residents from the homeless shelter to work in the gardens on their free time.
This project would mostly be funded by fundraisers. We had hoped to get a large amount of the supplies needed to be donated by people who no longer had a use for them or for those who wanted to work in the garden as a hobby to bring their own gardening supplies. We also hoped we would get funding from people within the community who would want to donate money to beautify the community if they don’t wish to get their hands dirty working in the garden. We also hoped to get lots of volunteers to help out in the garden to keep it running and to help raise money to gather the gardening supplies. After the garden was up and running we had thought of putting together events near the garden such as a little festival with little rides and games for the children, where you would have to pay a small amount to ride or play, to enter the festival people would also pay a small fee to enter. After the garden starts to grow some produce, the food that is not used by the homeless shelter could be sold at a local farmers market and the funds from those sales could go back into funding to keep the garden in good condition and running for a long time. To keep people from vandalizing the garden we also planned to build a small fence around the area and to have specific operating hours and to only give a key to the people in the community who use the garden as a hobby. After we start making some money from selling the produce we also thought about hiring someone from the homeless shelter as a part-time employee and pay them to keep the garden safe from people who wished to vandalize it.
By converting the abandoned houses in an area into a community garden that would benefit everyone in the community we hoped that it would bring people together and to beautify and make the community better. By having a community garden we could provide food for those in the area who can not afford it and we can also provide an outlet for people who wish to pick up a hobby. The community garden would make the area more visually appealing and would also provide a part-time job for someone who needs to get off of their feet or could be used as a field trip by after school clubs and national honors society students who want to gain some volunteer hours.

Problem:

The problem that our group was given was the issue of children showing up to school with bruises, presumably as a result of abuse.

Program:

To help overcome this issue, our group has decided to create a weekly, after school arts program for the school district in which this is happening. This program will revolve around a rotation of different art activities for the children to do; like various arts, crafts, and theatre. We hope to provide a safe, fun, and wholesome environment for children. One allowing them to simply enjoy themselves making art without having to worry about any other issues that they may be facing at home or school.

Process:

The basis for our program will be the revolving sets of activities that we offer to the children that rotate every week. These activities will primarily include theater and affordable arts and crafts, such as making bead necklaces or painting. This program and its activities will be lead by paid instructors, but we are also interested in offering volunteer opportunities to high school students to help lead activities. The most important part in ensuring this program's success is receiving parent's permission to allow their children to participate in this after school program. We hope to receive this permission by making the program as convenient as possible; including advertising it to parents as completely FREE and providing transportation for students that need it. Since we are offering to provide transportation, the majority of our funds will be spent paying for buses as transportation. We believe this cost to be worthwhile, as it will ensure students are able to participate in our program. To make ends meet, we plan on generating revenue by selling the arts and crafts that the students create. We are also considering holding an end of the year performance of a play or musical, as long as the students are interested in preparing one. This performance would hopefully generate further revenue and provide exposure for our program and what we are doing.

Projected outcome:

The projected outcome for our program is for the children that participate to have an escape from their households. Along with this escape, we hope to provide them with a safety net of close friends who may be grappling with similar issues. Ultimately, we would like for these children to learn how to express themselves through art. Which hopefully will give them their own way of dealing with any issues or problems that they may experience in their lives.

My group worked closely with yours on this issue, because our community garden was a way to get the children out of those harmful environments and to get them to do something fun. I think that our groups collaborating on this could actually help with the issue that your group was tasked with while also helping out our group by running the community garden

Problem: Many children are coming to school with bruises. There is a chance of abuse.

Program: After school arts program for children of a specific school district. Activities will vary, but will touch on many forms of art. This will keep the children interested and continue coming. There will be an end of year show or craft auction to aid with additional funding. There will also be optional field trips for the children thanks to working with the other groups from class.

Process: We will set our focus on a low income school district. Statistics show that these areas have higher levels of abuse. Our program is free to attend, and will be held weekly in the school’s gym. Parents must sign a permission slip in order for the child to attend, but the parents are welcome to sit in at any time. Volunteers from the local high school and middle school will come to provide companionship as well as mentor ship to the younger kids. They can earn NHS points, or class credit if their teacher agrees (drama class, art class, band, choir, ect.) the funding we received from the state will go towards transportation of the students. This will help in their home life because the parent does not need to leave the home or work to pick them up. Therefore, they are causing “less stress” on their parents. 

Projected outcome: to provide a safe environment for children to explore the arts, but to also escape the abuse in the home. They will gain friendships with their older peers along with better role models to look up to. They can also participate in trips and activities that will contribute to the bettering of their community as a whole.

The main goal of this project is to help battered men and women get a new and better life and expand on how counseling helps to heal battered persons. Support from family and companions and also guiding, treatment, and care groups for domestic abuse survivors can enable you to proceed onward from an injurious relationship. You or your kids may battle with disquieting feelings or feel numb, separated, and unfit to confide in other individuals. After the injury of an oppressive relationship, it can require a significant stretch of time to get over the agony and terrible recollections yet you can recuperate and proceed onward.

The main things required for this project is availability of flyers, ads on television, publicity through social media, association with at least 10 verified counselors, partnership with HR firms and partnership with non-profit organizations. To start this project, we have to talk to the counselors first of all, make sure they are verified and confidential. Then start a campaign on social media that provides information about the impacts of talking to a certified counselor. We have to provide an ad on the television and distribute flyers containing the required information. Also, we need to rise funding through some charity functions and have access to NGOs. Once there are a solid number of enrollees in the program, the project will be expanded further to help the battered people nationwide.

The battered people don’t admit their helplessness most of the times. The main outcome is to help battered men and women spend a better life after they know their self-worth and started a process of healing. Regardless of whether you're anxious to hop into another relationship lastly get the closeness and bolster you've been feeling the loss of, it's insightful to take things gradually. Ensure you're mindful of any warning practices in a potential new accomplice and what it takes to build solid, new connections.

In my Let’s Go Arts class this semester, our professor, Kendrick Jones, split us up into five groups with five to ten students in each group. He gave each group a scenario to work out within the community. The group members were from different cultures and personalities and unique skills and processes. He required each group to solve a problem reoccuring in Flint using the arts.

My group, group five, was assigned blight. Our goal was to solve the  problem with abandoned buildings in Flint. Unfortunately, Flint has a very serious structure abandonment problem. According to CNN, one in fourteen houses is vacant in Flint. These houses can attract crime and bring down property values, and quite frankly, they are an eyesore. Everyone in my group came together and started thinking of ways to solve this problem. Our program is an art-scaping community garden. We want to turn these gloomy houses into a happy place for Flint residence to feel safe.

Since we had to use the arts, we decided we needed to make them look pleasing. During our brainstorming sessions, my group came up with a couple of different ideas to go about this problem. Firstly, we wanted to give back to the community. We decided to turn some if not most of them into community gardens, this way the people of Flint can have access to free, healthy food. We also wanted to give some houses to other groups so they can have some resources to fix other problems in Flint. We would host fundraisers to make sure we have enough money for supplies and materials. We would hire unemployed people in need to guard and maintain the garden. And if we make extra money from the fundraisers we want to make these abandoned neighborhoods look pleasant.

Most of our funding would arise from fundraisers would host annual carnivals and haunted houses because family events are known to raise a lot of money, and it would keep volunteers from leaving the projects. Inspired by Randy Land, our group also wants to paint these houses and the sidewalks and put up donated works of art to attract people. Reading chapter 6 in “Ecology of Democracy” helped us get a better grasp on how to solve this issue. This helped us decide how to use material to help us achieve our goal. In the end, we want the Flint community to feel safer, healthier, and we want our community to look nicer and attract people.

I agree with your idea. We should help the homeless people to become more independent instead of let them depend more on other people. Because it's not good for them and the rest of the society on the long run. When a homeless people will be independent he will be doing some work. Thus, they will be ultimately, contributing to the growth of our country.

Problem: The problem my group faced was homelessness.

Process: For our project we wanted to create a sort of program to help repair the abandoned houses in the area, however before we do this we’ll ask for sponsorships from everyone in the community. with the money we can turn these abandoned houses into shelters to serve food and other things. we’ll also be advertising everywhere including, bus stops, stores and newspaper. after we get the money we needed, we’ll start separating floors for men, women and families. we also wanted to create a workshop for people to create their own art and then try to sell it to make some money for the person who made the art this way we would inspire them to work and better up themselves.

Program: Coming into the houses we will allow every member but expect them to have a turnaround time. If they are unsuccessful during a period of time, we will allow them to explain their situations. and if their excuse is reasonable they can petition for more time.

Projected Outcome:  As a whole we hope to reduce the number of homeless people in the community and encourage the community to work together to combat homelessness With our process and program.

Problem:

Help eliminate the children who are being abused by their parents or guardians in the community. 

Program:

Our group decided to start an arts program for young kids that is required for every student in grade school to take, whether they be in elementary school, middle school, or high school. This is a good way to help bring aware of that children are being abused in our community and trying to point out which ones without making a big deal out of it. This class is designed to use art to express the children’s' emotions, whether they are abused or not. It is also serving as a way for their teachers to see which kids are being abused and to teach the class what being abused is like. This is also a cheap way to help this because all we would have to pay for is the art materials.

Process:

We are going to start this process by informing the person who runs the school district with the most abused kids in in and inform him or her of how many kids are being abused in the area. Then we will introduce what we plan to help do with this information, the program. After getting approval, we will find a teacher who will like to teach this class and start a fundraiser to help fund this program. When the program starts, the new class will be incorporated into every student’s schedule. It will also be a pass/fail class and attendance would be mandatory, just like every other class. If the we find out parents are angry about this class, we will use school security or law enforcement to prevent them from doing anything dangerous. If a kid is being abused the teacher is expected to report it to the school and use their existing system to take care of it.

Projected Outcome:

The projected outcome is to help kids speak out about what is happening at their house and to be aware of what being abused is really like. This class is designed to use art to express the children’s' emotions, whether they are abused or not. It is also serving as a way for their teachers to see which kids are being abused. In the end, we hope to find out which kids are being abused in the community and hopefully put an end to the ones that are.

I really like the idea of the program and the classes that are chosen for this project.

I think this is really helpful as this is a way for those who are abused to reveal it in a discreet manner and save facing any embarrassment that could prevent them from bringing it up.

Problem: Racism in the community 

The problem given to us as my group was that there is rampant racism in our community streets. My art group has been tasked with trying to help obliterate racism.

Program:

            We are an art group with nothing but ideas and drive. We notice that here has been racism within our community and we plan on doing something to stop it. We each come from a different cultural background and we all accept one another. With our program we want to have different cultures mingle and teach each other about their experiences. The main bulk of our plan is to hold a cultural potluck that has meals and sweets along with stories about what they have been through. After the potluck we would be conducting a sort of a talent show. We want other cultures to show off their talent and skills. We hope that this sort of program would help people understand one another better, because we are only afraid of what we don’t understand.

Process:

            Holding a large talent show would require a rather large place. My group and I would be looking for a large amphitheater esque place. Something that could support many people, have room for tables of food, and a stage so that people can perform. People who are fluent in graphic design are next up, they are going to create flyers, social media pages, and spread the word about our cultural talent show we will be holding. We want to let as many people know about this as possible. Within our Facebook page we will have a RSVP so that we can get a feel for how many people would be coming. Holding something as big as this is going to require more than just a few college students, we plan on asking local colleges to volunteer to help at this cultural talent show. We will get a list of all our volunteers and bring all our ideas and support to city council. With this overwhelming amount of support and people we believe they will say yes. With the green light from the city council we will then ask the own of the amphitheater if we could use it to hold our cultural potluck and talent show. With his green light we will call in the volunteers to help clean the place and decorate it for the cultural talent show. We will then set a date and have a start time for all guest who would enjoy being apart of this experience. Being as that racist tensions are high, and we are bringing a lot of races together in one building we plan on having a metal detector to help search for weapons that may be hidden. We also plan on having undercover cops hiding within the crowd increase a fight breaks out.

            We need to make some money somehow with this project, so we decided to have an entry fee for $10. For people that would like to audition it would cost 7$. To get people to audition we will invite talent scouts and college representatives to this event. The people who have talent have a chance of scholarship. The top three also will get prize money.

Projected outcome:

            We would like to use the money from the cultural potluck and talent show to renovate some buildings within the community, so we can hold artistic classes. These classes would involve learning dance, how to draw, and so much more. We hope that these classes would generate enough revenue to hold a second cultural potluck and talent show. Which we will the use the money for that to renovate more buildings and the process continues. We understand that racism is going to be a tough problem to solve but given time we believe that understanding is the key of fixing this epidemic.

            We would like to use the money from the cultural potluck and talent show to renovate some buildings within the community, so we can hold artistic classes. These classes would involve learning dance, how to draw, and so much more. We hope that these classes would generate enough revenue to hold a second cultural potluck and talent show. Which we will the use the money for that to renovate more buildings and the process continues. We understand that racism is going to be a tough problem to solve but given time we believe that understanding is the key of fixing this epidemic.

Problem: Racism in the community 

The problem given to us as my group was that there is rampant racism in our community streets. My art group has been tasked with trying to help obliterate racism.

Program:

            We are an art group with nothing but ideas and drive. We notice that here has been racism within our community and we plan on doing something to stop it. We each come from a different cultural background and we all accept one another. With our program we want to have different cultures mingle and teach each other about their experiences. The main bulk of our plan is to hold a cultural potluck that has meals and sweets along with stories about what they have been through. After the potluck we would be conducting a sort of a talent show. We want other cultures to show off their talent and skills. We hope that this sort of program would help people understand one another better, because we are only afraid of what we don’t understand.

Process:

            Holding a large talent show would require a rather large place. My group and I would be looking for a large amphitheater esque place. Something that could support many people, have room for tables of food, and a stage so that people can perform. People who are fluent in graphic design are next up, they are going to create flyers, social media pages, and spread the word about our cultural talent show we will be holding. We want to let as many people know about this as possible. Within our Facebook page we will have a RSVP so that we can get a feel for how many people would be coming. Holding something as big as this is going to require more than just a few college students, we plan on asking local colleges to volunteer to help at this cultural talent show. We will get a list of all our volunteers and bring all our ideas and support to city council. With this overwhelming amount of support and people we believe they will say yes. With the green light from the city council we will then ask the own of the amphitheater if we could use it to hold our cultural potluck and talent show. With his green light we will call in the volunteers to help clean the place and decorate it for the cultural talent show. We will then set a date and have a start time for all guest who would enjoy being apart of this experience. Being as that racist tensions are high, and we are bringing a lot of races together in one building we plan on having a metal detector to help search for weapons that may be hidden. We also plan on having undercover cops hiding within the crowd increase a fight breaks out.

            We need to make some money somehow with this project, so we decided to have an entry fee for $10. For people that would like to audition it would cost 7$. To get people to audition we will invite talent scouts and college representatives to this event. The people who have talent have a chance of scholarship. The top three also will get prize money.

Problem: Racism in the community 

The problem given to us as my group was that there is rampant racism in our community streets. My art group has been tasked with trying to help obliterate racism.

Program:

            We are an art group with nothing but ideas and drive. We notice that here has been racism within our community and we plan on doing something to stop it. We each come from a different cultural background and we all accept one another. With our program we want to have different cultures mingle and teach each other about their experiences. The main bulk of our plan is to hold a cultural potluck that has meals and sweets along with stories about what they have been through. After the potluck we would be conducting a sort of a talent show. We want other cultures to show off their talent and skills. We hope that this sort of program would help people understand one another better, because we are only afraid of what we don’t understand.

Process:

            Holding a large talent show would require a rather large place. My group and I would be looking for a large amphitheater esque place. Something that could support many people, have room for tables of food, and a stage so that people can perform. People who are fluent in graphic design are next up, they are going to create flyers, social media pages, and spread the word about our cultural talent show we will be holding. We want to let as many people know about this as possible. Within our Facebook page we will have a RSVP so that we can get a feel for how many people would be coming. Holding something as big as this is going to require more than just a few college students, we plan on asking local colleges to volunteer to help at this cultural talent show. We will get a list of all our volunteers and bring all our ideas and support to city council. With this overwhelming amount of support and people we believe they will say yes. With the green light from the city council we will then ask the own of the amphitheater if we could use it to hold our cultural potluck and talent show. With his green light we will call in the volunteers to help clean the place and decorate it for the cultural talent show. We will then set a date and have a start time for all guest who would enjoy being apart of this experience. Being as that racist tensions are high, and we are bringing a lot of races together in one building we plan on having a metal detector to help search for weapons that may be hidden. We also plan on having undercover cops hiding within the crowd increase a fight breaks out.

            We need to make some money somehow with this project, so we decided to have an entry fee for $10. For people that would like to audition it would cost 7$. To get people to audition we will invite talent scouts and college representatives to this event. The people who have talent have a chance of scholarship. The top three also will get prize money.

Projected outcome:

            We would like to use the money from the cultural potluck and talent show to renovate some buildings within the community, so we can hold artistic classes. These classes would involve learning dance, how to draw, and so much more. We hope that these classes would generate enough revenue to hold a second cultural potluck and talent show. Which we will the use the money for that to renovate more buildings and the process continues. We understand that racism is going to be a tough problem to solve but given time we believe that understanding is the key of fixing this epidemic.
