Project: Emergency Preparedness Kits at Arts on the Avenue

Arts on the Avenue is an annual event on Smith Avenue on the West Side of Saint Paul. This event features local artists who bring their work to display their art, perform, and engage community members in fun, interactive activities. Danisa and the project team worked together to create an interactive station where people could come and decorate a canvas bag, and then use it to build their own emergency preparedness kit as they walked through a series of informational posters and activities to education community members about the local impacts of climate change.
