Many innovative companies have realised the importance of having a creative space/ lab to encourage free-play, stimulate innovative thinking and move from ideas and concepts to making, prototyping and building.
Urban Eye is a London based art and design group formed that uses art to transform neglected spaces and improve public safety. Mural and mosaics are organised with schools, youth projects and housing and resident associations.
Hi Uwe, This sounds great! I am the group coordinator so please feel free to email me on email@example.com and we can talk some more. Would be fantastic to work together. Thank you for stopping by :)
Brilliantly articulated. I especially agree with the need to let thoughts/ ideas incubate and not rush to the first (often most obvious) solution. The idea of opening and closing time for play is very interesting! Thanks for sharing :)
Hi Luisa, Wow, I love how your mind ran with the idea and came out with all these thoughts!! I totally agree with your way of thinking. What I loved about this initiative at the Tate was the fact that everybody's contribution was put on display, no filtering, no critical assessment, and I think that gives a huge confidence boost, and like you said,makes you feel part of something. I think this feeling of belonging is very important for teenagers, and so is the ability to show off/showcase something they created. So may be your creative platform should include an element that encourages teenagers to showcase their ideas! Let me know if you submit it as an idea, I'd love to follow it :) And thank you for sharing those inspiring projects!! I love the Johnny cash project!!
