When we imagine ecosystems, we tend to go back to memories of 7th grade science fair projects more than thinking of the complex cultural webs that exist for many of our disenfranchised neighbors. This session examines how to create a cultural ecosystem that supports socioeconomic creativity and sustainability in traditionally disenfranchised educational settings.
