Held with young people of the Vila Gaúcha Community Center, the objective was to stimulate the formation of a creative community. For this, products and services were created that enabled participation and collaboration.
This project comprised: activity diary and workshops to generate empathy and stimulate creativity; digital reference search platforms; partnership with Waste Bank to purchase materials; and training of local educators to give continuity to the project in post-design. Strategies have been developed to develop empathy with young people, to facilitate dialogue, to stimulate interest in social and collaborative activities, and to encourage more practical and creative activities.
