O’PENH Design Lab
2013 / Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The Lab is a series of pubic events me any my colleagues created during the FLS project in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The events are a mix of inspiring talks and hands on workshops aiming to increase the innovative confidence of students and many other locals. All we did supported the idea of how big ideas actually start out very small and how important it is to be confident in yourself and experiment.
The first event hosted by me and my colleagues was a big success and we managed to gather around 100 locals. After our talk we had a great open discussion with the students about how they define creativity and innovation.
At our workshops we created problem scenarios which our participants had to solve with simple materials. We very likely created the first public creative space in Phnom Penh letting students from different universities collaborate and experiment with each other.
We’ve got the people, they’ve got the motivation. My colleagues in Cambodia are now looking some funding. Let me know if you’d like to support this project.
