How can we engage families to participate in the design of the public square at Baltimoreplein in Almere Buiten? This was what the Municipality of Almere was wondering. Especially since COVID-19 is eliminating all types of physical gatherings, they looked for an innovative alternative for public participation. Arttenders was therefore asked to not only create a concept for the actual design process of the square, but also to invite young Buitenaren to actively help design the square.
#onzebuit at Baltimoreplein
So here it is: the participation call for the design of the public square Baltimoreplein in Almere Buiten. Design your own square now by using our toolkit that can be accessed by visiting www.onzebuit.nl!
In this project, we invite all children of Almere Buiten (and everyone else) to think as a real designer during the spring holiday. We are collecting the creative input of the kids before starting our own design process. The toolkit consists of a handout and inspirational tutorials by Lize Korpershoek.
All creations can be uploaded on Instagram using #onzebuit. Submissions until mid-May will be used as a starting point by the artists we will be collaborating with. Would you also like to participate or looking for a fun design challenge?
