In cooperation with the Victoria Square Project, the artist Eleonora Meoni and our friends from Free Movement Skateboarding we designed and realized a small skate park in winter 2017/2018. The park is part of the Souzy Tros Art Canteen, a project of the Greek artist Maria Papadimitriou that she started in 2016 as a social art project to revive Eleona's inhospitable neighborhood. Now the project is going into a new round to become a place where one can briefly escape from everyday life - for the children of the largest refugee camp in the immediate vicinity. In addition to the skate lessons offered there by Free Movement Sakteboarding, Eleonora and Maria also organize an artistic program with artist residencies and workshops.
+ Method: Co-Creation
Together with our clients and all parties involved, we try in a collaborative process to arrive at common approaches to solutions that are supported by all. For this purpose we have developed a need-oriented, result-open workshop format that adapts flexibly to the respective location and the respective challenge.
+ Method: Co-Production
Even after the co-creation process, we do not see ourselves as a mere implementation agency, but see it as a core task to involve as many people as possible with different backgrounds and motivations in the implementation of our projects. In our drafts we therefore do not only work site-specifically, but also group-specifically.
