Rethinking Community | Do Dream Pledge

May 10, 2010

A draft of our current thinking on neighbourhood development powered by the community told through animation here. How might our neighbourhoods be if the ideas and resources were crowd sourced from by the community “do”-ing instead of an outside developer imposing a way of living and doing in cookie cutter fashion? How might a people be inspired to “dream” if the amazing stories within their communities were made known to them – to understand that it is ordinary people that can make change happen? In a time of low resources, how could a community come together and “pledge” to regenerate itself  through the power of the masses? We think this is a future worth shaping – one in which dreams of the community drive a sense of place from the ground up to rebuild our neighbourhoods in a way that empowers people and enables the community to be active citizens.

PS. We’re trying this medium out following the success of our animation at the World Architecture Forum last year. Expect to see a few more 00:/ productions. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this…
