Play Vision

PlayVision happened as part Designing Dublin. The idea behind PlayVision was to engage with the school children of Clongriffin, a housing estate whose development had stalled as a result of the banking crisis. Before meeting with the children we’d heard from the ‘grown ups’, who said:

‘People don’t feel a sense of connection with Clongriffin’
‘We have no vision for our future here’
‘There’s nowhere to meet and share a conversation’
‘Clongriffin is a place where nothing happens’

Pretty depressing, huh? So we thought why not ask the children what they thought Clongriffin could be. As part of a team, I helped sketch out a scenario that:

  1. Provided the kids with an inspiring tour of Clongriffin, where they met different characters.
  2. Include a workshop that would encouraged them to create new ideas for Clongriffin
  3. Resulted in an exhibition that featured scaled up versions of the children’s ideas
