The totem pole art was inspired by the 2017 summer camp theme, “Nature of Culture.” This programming aimed at reaching low-income, underserved Milwaukee youth to engage them in cultural exploration. Through the use of field trips, workshops, and performances students were introduced to the traditional practices of different cultures. Further, through a series of hands-on activities, Neighborhood House summer camp participants strengthened their connections to community and explored the relationship between environment and culture.
