The program for 2023 will be conducted in person at our workshop space in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset. One-on-one mentor meetings will take place online, while working sessions, workshops, and field trips will take place in person throughout the San Francisco bay area.
Group sessions take place on Saturday mornings, and bring together all students and mentors for reading discussions, presentations, and activities that create meaningful connections. One-on-one sessions are private meetings between students and mentors to work together on developing the students’ project. These are set up based on the schedules of mentors and students.
Workshops are unique opportunities presented by mentors that explore specific topics, tools, and concepts in depth. Field trips will see us visiting museums and galleries for special artist talks, guided tours, and other unique experiences only available to Problem Children students.
The PC Workshop is our name for the physical space which has dedicated working stations for each student. This gives students the opportunity to come in during open hours throughout the week to work on their projects, advance their knowledge, get to know each other, or meet with mentors. The workshop is home to many tools and materials for hands-on creating, as well as educational material, and support from mentors.
Problem Children gave me a chance to understand myself and where I came from differently. I learned how to see my past in a different light.
