We are desperately in need of public spaces where people can meet and simply BE, without having to consume. With people now spending more waking time outside of their homes than within them, there is a growing need for private, safe spaces within public settings. These neutral spaces are essential for the health and wellbeing of any community, and allow everyone to feel included.
I help communities create large-scale hand-woven spaces through a series of workshops. This adds to people’s sense of ownership, and allows them to take responsibility and pride in the resulting space which in turns prevents vandalism and misuse.
