week 2       27.04. – 03.05.2015


To announce our presence in the neighbourhood we decide to plan our first intervention for week two: a participatory construction of an object in the courtyard of Gibalskiego 2-10 and Okopowa Street. The courtyard in our opinion has great potential for improvement and has a very local existing group we want to involve – the children from ‘swietlica’(after school club).

Part 1: Workshop (children)

– Collecting material from the bin areas (old furniture, wooden boards)

– Cutting found material to size

– Painting the timber boards (the planned themes like ‘bird perspective’, ‘catch a shadow’ weren’t in the end put into practise)

– Help screwing the structure together (one or two people at a time)

Part 2: Conversation (passers-by, parents, anyone)

– Talking to passers-by, collection of stories from Młynów and the courtyard history
