School Tool: HOMAGO Guidebook Provides Pointers for Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out

Free! The term HOMAGO first crossed our radar back in 2012 while touring around the Chicago HIVE Network, a consortium of youth-facing organizations supported by the MacArthur Foundation. Short for Hang Out, Mess Around, Geek Out, HOMAGO is a theory which attempts to explain the many ways that youth interact with new and social media. A contingent of HIVE Chicago led by Yollocalli Arts Reach, has now codified best practices from the Yollocalli Arts Reach Open Studio -- a youth cultural production space -- into the HOMAGO GUIDEBOOK. The intent of the guide is "to help facilitate and inspire organizations, schools and institutions to provide informal learning spaces for teens."
