How to do work that responds to 21st century challenges and also meets the deep seated need for well-being?
In the Culture Squad we meet to answer this. We come from community theater, punk art, spoken poetry, game design, or cultural policy and participatory event making. An open team and global network, we act as a high speed mobile division which amplifies local grassroots initiatives into a bigger conversation on our Edgeryders platform.
Our favourite work so far was/is:
- producing co-created community festivals
- building a new generation of urban game designers who use play as a tool for social cohesion
- training cities and organisations to build thriving communities using online/offline methodologies.
Connectivity and technology help us accelerate learning, share knowledge with each other and broadly, and generate meaningful work for our members.
