From January on I will be participating in The Big South project by The Patching Zone in Rotterdam.
The Big South project moves on where Go-for-IT!, the citygame The Patching zone is producing now in Rotterdam Zuid, stops. It uses the contacts and partnerships that have already been made in the area to work on a network that will motivate and facilitate young people from Rotterdam Zuid to start as a creative entrepreneur. To realize this, a Digital Lab will be built where a major end-event will be produced, together with our partners and young people from the area. Throughout the period there will be peer-to-peer workshops, where the exchange of skills and idea’s are crucial. In the first phase the project will build a node of the international Living Lab network where young people can get experience with creative media applications in a digital media lab and get a strong theoretical and practical preparation in cultural and social entrepreneurship.
