FINE: REFLECTIONS ON RESILIENCE
A COLLABORATION BETWEEN AUGSBURG COLLEGE & PEASE ACADEMY
Reception: Friday, September 5, 6 – 7:30 p.m. Music by the Kennedy’s: Meg Miura and Dave Chapman
Over spring semester, 2014, Augsburg College Graphic Design I and Typography students collaborated with students at PEASE Academy, the oldest sober high school in the U.S., to explore what it means to be resilient. Themes such as addiction, recovery and common challenges that all humans face were expressed through creative writing, collage and the design of a zine.
This project was made possible with support from University of Minnesota’s Buckman Fellowship for Leadership in Philanthropy. Fellows Lois Libby Juster and Julie Longo conceived and facilitated this project.
