This is Where: Posters on the Muni T Line

We are thrilled to present This is Where: Poems on Place and Memory. This poster series will be on display on Muni’s T-Third Street Line light rail platforms in Bayview Hunters Point from mid June to August 2014. The posters feature poem excerpts by seven youth, ages 14 to 17, who participated in WritersCorps workshops at College Track San Francisco, an educational nonprofit based in Bayview Hunters Point. The teens wrote about memories tied to specific places in San Francisco, many of them in the Bayview. These poems are not just memories, they are maps. They tell the histories of our young people, the history of right now. See all the posters here.
