BBC Pop Up in Tacoma: Glassblowing keeps kids out of gangs
The BBC Pop Up team has spent all of February in Tacoma, Washington, asking local people what stories they want to share with a global audience.
Tacoma is a gritty industrial port city and one notorious neighbourhood in particular has a long history of being blighted by poverty and violence.
But things are changing in Hilltop, in part because of an unlikely project aimed at keeping at-risk children off the streets and away from drugs.
BBC Pop Up's Matt Danzico reports on how the ancient art form of glassblowing is proving an attractive alternative to gangs.
