Springfield Out Now Mural
Painted by Mimi Ditkoff. Designed in collaboration with the youth from Out Now. A video by Focus Springfield Community TV.
Inspiration for the mural came from a Students Speak project where Out Now students shared their educational experiences and what they need to be successful in school.
It is important for LBGTQ youth’s stories to be shared and help them to be seen and heard. They hope to make a change in what is going on in the public school system.
The mural is a comparision between experiences in school now and what it might look like in the future.
