We're stoked to start running monthly sessions with our friends at Oasis, as a part of their high school curriculum! St. Alban's Boys and Girls Club has generously agreed to share their space for the 3rd Tuesday of every month between 1-3pm.
Today we had a great discussion on some of the problems we notice in skateboard culture—hyper-masculinity, the exclusivity of some scenes, and reconciling progressive values with anti-establishment roots—and what we can do to resolve these issues.
So good to hear the insights of young people who are in the midst of skateboarding at the intersections of race, gender, capitalism, and culture. Looking forward to our next session!
