agIdeas Next is a workshop aimed at encouraging children to become champions of good design. All young minds are fired with imagination, stoked by curiosity – and from imagination springs new ideas. Through this program, primary schools are invited to bring along groups of inquisitive and innovative students to participate in activities with inspirational designers. By sparking in the children a realisation that design plays a role in their everyday lives and an understanding of how they can influence the way things look and work, the program aims to set them on a path to becoming champions for design, who have the curiosity to imagine a better world and the understanding of how to make it so.
I recently had the opportunity to help facilitate the agIdeas Next workshop. These are pictures of my group.
