Making Benches, Making Friends
Art, placemaking and community initiative
Jan - Jun 2023
Making Benches, Making Friends, by Rumen Rachev from Activities and Research in Environments for Creativity Charitable Trust and Chris Berthelsen
A mobile workshop roaming the community “making friends” and “making benches”. Specifically, walking-making tours with local residents to envision a better
resting environment and create movable benches/seating which they can put outside their homes/on the berms by using discarded pallets and other materials left in the public (i.e. cleaning up as part of the public-service-creative-practice). Involves people living and working in the Albert-Eden area, with a focus on Morningside and surrounds.
