Wa|K-H

WA|K-H is an ongoing community project focused on neighborhood walkability that began in Fall 2019 with community activists, youth, SAIC faculty, and alumni. In 2019, students focused on identifying barriers to walking in the 0.5-mile radius of the Kedzie-Homan Blue line. The final report can be found on the WA|K-H website.

In fall 2020 community youth, Lawndale transportation activists, and SAIC degree-seeking students continued the project forward by collaboratively contributing to the initiative through three WA|K-H classes. This three-part curriculum — made up of Lawndale Civic Design youth class, SAIC Design @ Homan Square, Design Action: North Lawndale — fulfilled the fall 2020 phase of WA|K-H.
