Civic Square and The Department of Dreams have funded a small research project that explores how we play together during lockdown. In this time we have stayed ‘hyperlocal’, proximity has become a commodity and we are finding new places, creating new spaces for shared cultural experiences (windows, gardens, balconies). Tine is exploring how we can create a shareable kit or tool that can collect play stories, images and thoughts of how we can play and connect locally. Stay tuned to hear more.
Department of Dreams is part of Civic Square’ work to shape regenerative futures and reimagining the Public Square.
I believe cities need creative collaborative, social spaces—in unexpected places—that inspire participation and communication. After all, a city’s public spaces are fundamentally where people meet – Tine Bech.
