Mental Health Stigma Reduction Creative Intervention Project
Local foundation Interact for Health asked ArtWorks to design a project that would encourage dialogue and sharing among youth. Local designer Kate Tepe will work with 5 youth Apprentices and 1 Project Manager to design a card game to engage youth ages 15 – 18 in conversations about mental health. The team will engage 50 youth in the testing of the game and then up to 100 will play the final design of the game, created based on insights gathered during testing.

Hero Design Company
Hero Design Company (HDC) engages, encourages, and empowers children facing emotional, physical or situational hardship through the creation of custom superhero capes, co-designed with and sewn by ArtWorks Youth Apprentices. HDC returns for the spring of 2018. Nine apprentices and two creatives will spend eight weeks engaging in co-design sessions with 60 – 75 children through local partners including Beech Acres Parenting Center, Grandview Elementary YMCA, and the Cincinnati Recreation Commission to create a cape for each child that represents their unique strengths and assets.
