Future Formers

Duration: 2010 – 2012

Project Description:

Stichting P&V organizes projects for and by young people, thus supporting their involvement in the community and letting them actively participate in building a solidary world. By setting up a competition (i.e. “GO 2030“), Stichting P&V challenged young people to express their ideas and suggestions on our future society. The winner of the competition was eeland, an organization from Genk that works with youth and deals with communication and new media.

The winning concept is called Future Formers and was be developed in five cities in Limburg (B): Beringen, Genk, Hasselt, Sint-Truiden and Overpelt. The youth of each city was be assisted by a coach designer or artist, who guided them in translating their vision on the future in an artistic production. This production also reflected on the problems and possibilities of public space in the city. By building on each others adaptations to a common artistic design (using Thomas Lommée’s “Open Structures”), the youth of the five cities created one, collective Gesamtkunstwerk.
