Skateboard Building in Brightmoor
On a chilly Saturday in December, in the art room at Detroit Community High School (DCH), Jesse Wilson, New York Director of the Chill Foundation, led a free skateboard-building workshop.
Since its founding in 1995, the Chill Foundation has been dedicated to working with underserved youth to build confidence and life skills through board sports. Undergraduate students from the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, high school students from DCH and Brightmoor residents attended the workshop and enjoyed a 4-hour design/build session together. The workshop is one of many examples of the way the Stamps School is connecting with the Brightmoor community through the Brightmoor Maker Space.
