The concept is simple; the impact is huge
The Superhero Project encourages strength through creative outlets for patients at N.C. Children’s Hospital. Our project hopes to demonstrate that creativity, courage and kindness are superpowers in their own regard by pairing patients at N.C. Children’s with local and student artists. The children and artists will team up to create superheroes and comic books modeled after the children themselves. The artists will then turn the children’s work into professionally done comic books. The Superhero Project serves to harness and pay-forward the strength that is in creativity.
The 2017-2018 school year marks our second fully functioning year as a UNC-Chapel Hill student organization, and we are so excited for what's in store! During our first year, we earned the Bryan Fellowship through APPLES Service Learning, which has helped catapult us into our biggest project of the last year: completely creating a coloring book for the children at UNC Children's. As we enter the next school year, we're excited and more than ready to publish, distribute and expand our coloring book, expand our outreach as an organization and strengthen our community.
The Superhero Project is supported by a Robert E. Bryan Fellowship from the APPLES Service-Learning Program, an offering of the Carolina Center for Public Service at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
