Project Description

The 2nd “Experiencing Public Space” Education Scheme
“Memories of Tomorrow”

Project Descriptions

Date: March – April 2014
Project Nature: Education

The project aims to enhance participants’ understanding of public space. Through a series of workshops, sharing, guided tours and presentations, we trained over 40 Form 4 to Form 6 students to reflect on the value of public space and place-making. With the theme “Memories of Tomorrow”, participants, with help from our mentors, were required to initiate projects that can both incorporate local culture and encourage social interactions. The education scheme culminated with final presentations in which participants had to present their work and learning experience.

Through our programs, we hoped students would not only pay more attention to both the potential and limitations of public space, but also unleash the potential of public space with their creativity.
