Center for Urban Pedagogy

The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is a non-profit organisation that uses the power of design and art to increase meaningful civic engagement. CUP collaborates with designers, educators, advocates, students, and communities to make educational tools that demystify complex policy and planning issues. Projects to date have varied from the juvenile justice system to zoning law to food access, breaking them down into simple, accessible, visual explanations. The tools created are used by organizers and educators all over New York City and beyond to help their constituents advocate for their own community needs.
