Our piece is a visual and interactive art piece which is documented as a single photo collage for the purposes of judging. The piece consists of a path covered with chalk footprints as well as quotes that exemplify the themes of hope and justice. The mission of our organization is to provide mental health support in a youth-driven, community based manner, so here we focused on emphasizing the importance of unity and community to create hope and justice. Every trail of footprints represents a member of our community who worked on the project, building and walking the path of hope together. The quotes we chose were relevant to individuals and the group as a whole, and were intended to reflect our sentiments on mental health. The piece serves as a reminder to us that we should always be hopeful because there is a large, passionate community around us, and that together we can create our own justice by breaking down the stigma around mental health. We hope that others take away the same message, and we created the piece so that it is visible from the sidewalk to passerby.
