Many of our existing institutions are no longer fit for purpose, because they are largely built on 18th century industrial principles of driving efficiency of outputs over the flourishing of human beings. We need to build and reimagine new institutions fit for the 21st Century that support the needs, rights and future opportunities for 21st century children and families.
New service department dedicated to driving forward rights of all children and families, focused on investing in and centring leadership of neurodiverse and disabled citizens in the building of our cities. Ensuring all new physical development, services and institutions are co-led and designed by citizens with lived experience of neurodiversity and disability. Inspired by Spectra Arts.
21st Century Library & Children’s Centres
Reinvestment in libraries as core infrastructure for neighbourhoods across the county, multi-purpose spaces that take the best of dwindling institutions and create new places of learning, connection and support.
After school clubs with a difference, selling superhero supplies and putting local creatives together with children. One project from the Brooklyn saw a team learn about superfoods, the history, process and potential recipes that use them, so that they can share healthy eating practices with their families and friends. Inspired by Superhero School, Brooklyn.
