Calling to arms of all creatives: designers, makers, innovators, creators, educators, builders, engineers, architects and all those shades in between who a) believe that our world can be a better place that it is at the moment, b) you have sometimes believed as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast c) Curious what can happen when we pool together our noggins and see what magic could come of it, then this could be the group for you...

Personally, I love designing but I want to learn to make and do: not just sit behind a computer desk, and I want to meet others kindred spirits who feel that there must be something more than this....

As a kid I felt happiest tinkering, making dens and generally making stuff and want to find people to help me to harness that energy again and put it to good use. 

Speaking for myself, I enjoy looking for finding creative ways to solve the future problem of a shortage of space which does not impede (but rather enhance?) on peoples’ well-being. I believe that architecture and environment can have a profound effect on people psyche but we have collectively lost the art of placemaking and think this could be an interesting avenue to explore. Plus I think we could do a better job than developers.... We just need to find a way to make it happen but where there is a will, there is a way. 
I think finding forgotten pockets of our environment and plugging them with pockets of poetry would be absolutely awesome! but I am sure you have other ideas too.... 

I believe in the importance of good, free, flexible education for all. It is in all our best interests. I think that we are headed down a dangerous road, potentially creating a generation with nothing to lose and who feel bitter and forgotten. That is not the society I want to live in....Indeed, who wants to live in an uneducated society? 

  I believe in helping...no, empowering people to help themselves. Everyone has something to bring to the table. It is our job as a society that everyone is able to find their spark and it act out. So much potential is currently being wasted.  Most People don't want handouts, they want opportunity. If the government isn't living up to their role, then there is an opportunity for us to help ourselves as a society. Exciting times!...

Really hope to see you soon.
