Part of the Northside Narratives Program, which works to empower and build youth as community leaders and entrepreneurs, the projects were geared toward helping to build a more caring and prosperous North Side community while working toward stopping the violence. The event was held at Nova Place in Alloy 26, located in the North Side.
