Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

Redesigning Social Services and Green Tiling

A couple of interesting posts. First off one from, Red, Active Mobs and Redesigning Public Services. It is a great article about RED, which is a part of the Design Council, the UK’s official design agency. RED has been giving the job to use new design principles revamp social services. Instead of simply making social services more efficient, RED is trying to considered how the can be redesigned to be more effective.
The second is Elegant Embellishments new urban tile that can reduce car pollution. Both (Urban Grids / Respiratory Oases) and have articles on it (Elegant Embellishments).
