In engaging workshops run by boredomresearch at Aspex, participants experienced technology through creative play.
Beneficiaries had the freedom to explore digital design tools within a supportive structure. Unique digitally-printed fabric designs and virtual 3D dress models were produced.
“Creative play allows learning without teaching, and is central to creating positive experiences in relation to technology.
Freedom is important for the ownership of achievements, developing confidence and allowing for the development of personal incentives.
Emphasis on promoting mutually-supportive exchanges between participants enhances resillience and independence through managed interdependence.
Collective experience provides oportunities for strong interpersonal connections, that act as a powerful risk mitigation strategy for the individual.”
