Territory provides skill-building programs in urban design, public art, and community-engaged planning for Chicago teenagers in at-risk communities. With these skills Territory participants are envisioning, planning, and building safer and more welcoming public spaces for all.
In 2018 Territory teens started working with young people in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. In summer 2020 Territory established a new home base in Austin. Territory programs are a safe, creative, collaborative space for young people, giving voice to black and brown teens who want to re-imagine and re-claim public spaces in their community.
