Inspiration (creative projects in public spaces)

The Real-world Games for Change Challenge aims to find those who want to design a game that can be played outdoors, while focusing on leaving a positive impact on the physical environment where the game was played. The winning designers will receive $5,000 to implement their game idea and will present their design and findings during our Festival. Deadline to apply is April 15. More info And more info

Artist Blanka Amezkua who works between New York and Athens, Greece initiated 3 / / / 3 ...three walls on wednesdays... as an open invitation for national and international artists to exhibit their work on three mobile walls that she will carry and place in different locations on a weekly basis in the streets of Athens. (Posted by Ben Stock of Brainpower)

Artist Laura Napier studied and photographed the way architectural public spaces influence people grouping and movement. Now she intervenes, making her work on the street, at temporary places with predictable yet striking crowd motion, at places that regulate behavior, at places that can be mapped out photographically from above.
