The Speaking Library will be an infrastructure for interaction and empowerment. Inspired by the organization’s mission to teach tools for agency and voice to the children they work with, the Library is conceived as a framework within which children can creatively express themselves.
In collaboration with Just Speak, END Studio will develop a kit of parts—objects, materials, and forms—with which program participants can create a personal diorama embodying what Just Speak means to them to be displayed in the shelving structure.
