6th semester, institute of the arts, zwolle

The task was to come up with a project that has a beneficial effect on the city Zwolle. I chose a district called Holtenbroek, which is known for it's cultural diversity, but also for it's criminal background and the consequent social difficulties. My intention was not to provide help from "outside", but to make the affected people help themselves.


The idea is to give the opportunity of creating completely self-organized small events or meetings which support the feeling of being a community. Specially designed templates that can easily be imprinted are provided for organizers of an event. The only thing to possibly mind is to keep a certain type of layout. The act of doing your own thing is the first step to self-help and thus finding own personal and bonding solutions.
