Encountering San Francisco

The SoEx Youth Advisory Board (YAB) continues to investigate ideas relating to personal experiences in an urban environment by addressing gentrification, criminal violence, education and corporate media. Lead artist B. Jesse Clarke and assistant Claire Droney will facilitate YAB to manifest these ideas in an arts zine featuring art, writing and interviews that will be published and locally distributed throughout San Francisco. Community guest speakers from the Bernal Heights Community Center, Tenants Union and Veterans for Peace will be invited to talk about themes from their organization enabling YAB members to discuss the issue to synthesize the results into a section for the zine. Stencil cutouts, sticker pages, postcard tear outs and mixed media objects blend into the zine for an interactive publication.
