YWCA TASK Teens win social advocacy award for Placemaking Photovoice Project

Mayor Gary Christenson welcomed the YWCA Teen Advocates Sharing Knowledge (TASK) teens and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to congratulate the teens for winning a Social Advocacy award from The American Planning Association – MA Chapter Awards Committee. The project “Placemaking/Photovoice Project in Malden” was recognized for its high level of advocacy planning on behalf of Malden residents.

The teens worked with MAPC on Placemaking, an innovative concept of capitalizing on community assets to create public spaces that are healthy, green, active and useful. The project combined the Placemaking concept with the use of Photovoice, a participatory research method through which people identify and enhance their community through photography. The project, displayed at the Teen Enrichment Center last fall, focused on Lincoln Commons and Fellsmere Pond, two locations that were identified as having much to offer residents.

The mayor commended the group on a job well done!
