Project Description

The 3rd “Experiencing Public Space” Education Scheme
“The Good Old Days in Public Spaces”

Project Descriptions

Date: January 2015 – March 2015
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 30 Form 4 to Form 6 students to reflect on the value of public space and place-making. With the theme “The Good Old Days in Public Spaces”, 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.
