Shine On SF and TogetherSF in partnership with Youth Speaks, SF Parks Alliance, First Exposures, Building 180 and One Hat One Hand, are excited to announce Love Letters to SF Workshop Series. Workshop participants will learn about the art and skill of short-form storytelling while helping to create a traveling art installation using more than 3,000 individual Golden Cards. The Golden Cards were collected as part of the Shine On SF Golden Tree activation, which travelled the city this summer and fall to ask San Franciscans the question, “What Makes SF Shine?”. Each Golden Card captures unique, handwritten reactions to the question and together the cards offer a dynamic portrait of the things we value about San Francisco. Workshop volunteers will help affix Golden Cards to seven-foot-tall block letters spelling ‘SHINE ON SF’ under the direction of the installation designer. The letters will then pop-up at multiple locations across the city during the holidays.
During the workshops, Youth Speaks’ facilitators will provide exercises in the skill of short-form storytelling, using the Golden Cards as inspiration. In order to capture these verbal ‘love letters’ to SF, participants will have the opportunity to sit down and share their story on camera with the Shine On SF team and potentially be featured on Shine On SF socials!
