2002 Platland-Nieuw Charlois > collaboration
Programme of 8 workshops for children age 6-12 from the neighbourhood of Charlois, commissioned by Charlois' Welzijn, Rotterdam, NL.
Every workshop, a different aspect of the concept: ‘a place of your own’ resulted in a different element in a specific technique. After the workshop, the elements were transformed into another dimension. These elements together construed the imaginary new neighbourhood: Platland_Nieuw Charlois.
Collaboration with 4 members of Foundation B.a.d: Jitka Andrea, Bibo, and Kamiel Verschuren.
